Velocipédic calendar opens in Algarve and August will have Tour of Portugal


The Volta ao Algarve will be, contrary to what is usual, the first race of the velocipédico calendar in Portugal next season, with the 82nd Tour to Portugal being scheduled for the usual first half of August.

According to the activity plan of the Portuguese Cycling Federation, 'Algarvia', the only event on the calendar of the UCI ProSeries category to be held in Portugal, will take place from February 17th to 21st, even before the Opening (March 7), which traditionally opens the season.

The other great highlight of the season that competitively extends until September is Volta a Portugal, whose 82nd edition, replaced this year by a special edition due to the covid-19 pandemic, will take place between the 4th and 15th of August.

In addition to the two races, there will be three more international races in Portugal: Classical da Arrábida (14 February), Volta ao Alentejo (17 to 21 February) and Torres Vedras International Grand Prix – Joaquim Agostinho Trophy (15 to 18 July).

The Portuguese Cup will consist of the Opening Event, in the region of Aveiro, the Classic of Arrábida and the Classic Aldeias do Xisto (May 9).

From June 18th to 20th, the National Championships will take place, still in a place to be designated.

For the end of the season, which arrives in Portugal a month before the end of the WorldTour and European circuit events, the Filigrana Route is scheduled (September 18), saying goodbye to the peloton at the Track Festival in Tavira, on 05 of October.
