January 11 th 2021 - 11:00
The reVolta, the women's test of the Volta Ciclista a Catalunya, will celebrate its second edition on May 30, 2021 in Sant Cugat del Vallès, with the presence of national and international women's teams.
After not being able to be disputed in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the reVolta will see the light again, for the first time, since the first edition in Barcelona in 2018, when it was held coinciding with the last stage of the Volta of that edition.
Sant Cugat del Vallès will be the setting for the start and the presentation of teams, as well as the arrival that will crown the winner of the event.
The organization works with a demanding and leg-breaking route, where the cyclists will have to face a hundred kilometers that will pass through various regions with a spectacular ending through the streets of Sant Cugat.
Francesc Carol, councilor d'Esports i Seguretat: "From the sports council of Sant Cugat del Vallès we want to give special promotion to all those initiatives that want to give a boost towards the total integration of women in the sports field. 21st century, there is still a long way to go to achieve true gender equality in the world of sport, sadly. "
It will also be a very special year, since previously, from March 22 to 28, 2021, the centennial edition of the Volta Ciclista a Catalunya will take place, with the participation of the best cyclists in the world.
Rubèn Peris, president of the Volta Ciclista a Catalunya Associació Esportiva: "We really wanted to start the reVolta, our women's event, and with Sant Cugat we have found the ideal travel companion to do it. We will have a great day of cycling feminine and with a very attractive ending."
In the coming months, the participating teams will be defined as well as the main favorites for victory, who will fight to register their names for the second time in the record of the event, which has the vocation to continue growing year after year.
The first edition of the reVolta in 2018 was won by the American Lauren Stephens (Cylance Procycling), ahead of the catalan Lorena Llamas, from the Movistar Team. After a forced three-year parenthesis, the ReVolta will return with more force in 2021.
