Volta a Catalunya 2022 Route stage 1: Sant Feliu de Guíxols - Sant Feliu de Guíxols

Monday 21 March - The Volta a Catalunya begins with a race from and to Sant Feliu de Guíxols after nine consecutive starts in nearby Calella.

Although the Volta a Catalunya opened nine times with a race from Calella to Calella, the route was never the same. Mostly, the riders entered a big loop through the hilly interiors, which is also to be expected in this year’s 1st stage.

Sant Feliu de Guíxols is an old port town with inviting sandy beaches on the Costa Brava. The Catalonian race visited the place three years ago in a technical finale with an uphill finish. Michael Matthews took the spoils ahead of Alejandro Valverde and Daryl Impey.

The Volta a Catalunya and Sant Feliu de Guíxols share a long history. For instance, 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.

The route of the 2022 Volta a Catalunya will be unveiled in January.
