Volta a Catalunya 2023 Route stage 1: Sant Feliu de Guíxols - Sant Feliu de Guíxols

Monday 20 March - The Volta a Catalunya begins with an out-and-back in Sant Feliu de Guíxols. The home straight runs uphill, so strongmen sprinters are expected to shine.

Before last year’s Sant Feliu de Guíxols stage the Volta a Catalunya opened nine times in a row with a race from Calella to Calella. Although start and finish were the same, the route never was. Which is to expected again with the route of the Sant Feliu de Guíxols stage.

That said, the finale is too good to neglect. Following a technical section with lots of twists and turns the 1 kilometre home straight runs slightly uphill.

Both in 2019 and 2022 the same victor emerged in Sant Feliu de Guíxols: Michael Matthews.

The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while intermediate sprints come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
