Edition 72 of the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana – or, Tour of Valencia – sets off this Wednesday to finish next Sunday. The GC action will probably boil down to the third and fourth day of action. The Queen Stage takes in an elevation gain of more than 4,000 metres, while stage 4 will be an individual time trial. (Slideshow route/profile)
Tadej Pogacar is title holder. While pocketing two stages, the Slovene won last year’s GC ahead of Jack Haig and Tao Geoghegan Hart.
