It’s the fifth consecutive time that Mataró serves as the start to a Volta a Catalunya stage. In 2015 and 2016, the riders left for Olot and in 2017 for La Molina in the high mountains. Last year, the race started off in Mataró and traveled to a sprint finish in Valls with Alejandro Valverde taking the flowers.
The 2nd stage of the 2019 Volta a Catalunya goes to Sant Feliu de Guíxols, an old port town with inviting sandy beaches on the Costa Brava. It has been 25 years since the race last visited Sant Feliu de Guíxols. Yet, the town and race go way back. The penultimate stage of the 1926 Volta a Catalunya arrived in the coastal town with Victor Fontan taking the win. The Frenchman pocketed the overall victory the next day in Barcelona.
More to follow once the route of the Volta a Catalunya’s 2nd stage is revealed.
