Volta a Catalunya 2019 Route stage 1: Calella – Calella
Monday, 25 March 2019 – Since 2012 the Volta a Catalunya sets off with an out-and-back stage in Calella. The route of the 1st stage usually runs on hilly to mountainous terrain, yet it often boils down to a sprint finish.
Although it’s the eight consecutive time that the Volta a Catalunya begins with a race from Calella to Calella, the route is never the same. Last year’s inaugural stage was played out on an undulating route before young Álvaro José Hodeg outsprinted Sam Bennett and Jay McCarthy on the line. He succeeded Davide Cimolai and Nacer Bouhanni, who sprinted to victory at the end of more mountainous stages.
Calella is a seaside town 55 kilometres north of Barcelona. Other winners of the Calella-Calella stage were Maciej Paterski (2015, early break), Luka Mezgec (2014, sprint), Gianni Meersman (2013, sprint), and Michael Albasini (2012, solo).
More to follow once the route of the 1st stage of the Volta a Catalunya is revealed.
