The centenary edition of the Volta a Catalunya sets off on Monday 23 March in Callela to finish on Sunday the 29th, probably on the renowned Montjuic city circuit in Barcelona. Usually the route takes in a mix of summit finishes, hilly stages, and an occasional chance for the sprinters. After the Tour de France and Giro d’Italia, the Volta a Catalunya is the oldest race on the cycling calendar with the inaugural edition held in 1911. (Slideshow route/profile)
