Edition 71 of the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana – or, Tour of Valencia – is played out from Wednesday 5 February to Sunday the 9th. After a seven-year gap the race is back on the calendar since 2016, which resulted in victories for Wout Poels, Nairo Quintana, Alejandro Valverde and Ion Izagirre. Since it is reborn, the race takes in a mix of hilly and sprint stages, one mountainous leg, and one (team) time trial.
Last year’s podium was rounded out by Alejandro Valverde and Pello Bilbao.
Allegedly, the 2020 edition will kick off in the province of Castellón, while the Queen Stage is set to be played out in the province Alicante. The last day of action is said to finish on a city circuit in the city of Valencia and an uphill time trial is also on the cards.
