The 13-kilometre descent to Davos is fast and demanding. The route continues downhill through the Landwasser Valley - only just 30 kilometres after the Flüela is there another short but steep climb to Davos Wiesen, before another fast descent brings the participants to the lowest point of the Engadin Cycling Marathon, Alvaneu Bad. There, at 957 metres, the real challenge of the Engadin Cycling Marathon begins, fortified by another refreshment station. At 2312 metres, the Albula Pass is not quite as high as the Flüela, but its 26 kilometres hardly leave any time to catch one's breath - especially since, in addition to the climb, the route along the Albula line of the Rhaetian Railway, also part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, is breathtaking.
On the Albula, 30 kilometres before the finish, there is the last refreshment of the day, followed by the descent "home". First on the tracks of the Tour de Suisse through the larches of the Engadine to La Punt, then on the Engadine road via Zuoz and S-chanf down to Zernez for the big reception at the finish area of the Engadine Cycling Marathon.
