The 100th edition of the Volta Ciclista a Catalunya cannot be held on the scheduled dates, from March 23th to 29th, following the preventive measures against SARS - CoV-2 (Covid-19) ordered by the Catalan Government. In accordance with the authorities, the competition has been postponed until a new date.
The Volta Ciclista a Catalunya will now request new dates to the UCI to be able to celebrate the 100th edition of the race this 2020, and in case of impossibility, to do it in 2021. The race has been held continuously since 1939, a few months after the end of the Spanish Civil War.
“We have tried until the end to be able to celebrate such a special edition of the Volta Ciclista a Catalunya as planned, but right now the prevention and health measures of the riders, teams and the attending public are ahead of the competition. The Volta will return stronger to celebrate the 100th edition in the best conditions. I want to thank the understanding of all the parts involved: Institutions, cities, fans, sponsors, teams, cyclists, volunteers… the history of the Volta continues and we will experience the 100th edition on other dates and with the full involvement of the public. We organise this great show for the people to enjoy the race”.
The Volta Ciclista a Catalunya is the third oldest stage race in the world, after the Tour de France and the Giro d'Italia, and year after year it congregates the best riders in the world.
In such a special edition, the number 100, the organization wishes that when the time comes it can be celebrated with complete normality, without any health risk, and with the full support of cycling fans.
