The 70th Tour of the Valencian Community goes through the streets for five days

If there is a sport that is fashionable in all areas of Valencia, apart from running, it is cycling. The 70th edition of the Tour of the Valencian Community (VCV) started on Wednesday and will end on Sunday, February 10. The cyclists Geraint Thomas and Alejandro Valverde, the winner of the last edition, are the favorites.


In addition to the presence of the winner of the Tour and the World Cup, 168 cyclists from 24 teams participate in the event. This sports competition will start with an individual time trial and will be held for five days. The stages will go through Orihuela, Alicante, Quart de Poblet, Chera, Villarreal, Alcoceber, Paterna and will finish in Valencia, giving great importance to mountain passes. The races will be broadcasted by Eurosport.



As a novelty this year, the race will have a women’s edition that will be celebrated on Sunday with the same route as the fifth male stage. The competition starts every day around 11:00 and ends between 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m., so if you plan to travel by car between those hours, stay tuned for traffic cuts.
