Volta a Catalunya 2021

The centennial edition of the Volta a Catalunya is a cycling race announced to take place in Callela on Monday 22 March to finish on Sunday 28th with eight races on the Montjuic circuit in Barcelona. Within the first four days, most uphill action is packed, while stage 2 will be the extreme time trial. The race is rated as a 2.UWT event and will sprint on the UCI Worldtour.

Together with the Vuelta a España and the Tour of the Basque Country, it is one of three World Tour stage races in Spain. The race had multiple different calendar dates, with September, June, and May running earlier. As part of the UCI World Tour, it has been on the calendar in late March since 2010.

It was first held in 1911 and usually runs over seven days and embraces the autonomous community of Catalonia in northeastern Spain, and involves one or two stages in the Pyrenees mountain region. Traditionally, the race concludes with a stage in Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, on the popular Montjuïc Climb and Park circuit.

The Route

The race starts with an out-and-back run in Calella and finishes at the Montjuic circuit in Barcelona. In terms of GC, on the second day and the high altitude finishes of stage 3 and stage 4, the race is predicted to come down to the ITT.

While the Volta a Catalunya begins with a sprint from Calella to Calella for the ninth consecutive time, the trail is never the same. This edition's 1st stage is less demanding but also features three climbs. On stage 2, the race serves as an individual time trial. On a rolling 21.1 kilometer distance, the riders move back from Banyoles to Banyoles.

On the third day of action, De GC's fight intensifies further. Stage 3 sprints into gear around Castelldefels's Canal Olímpic Catalunya to end uphill in Vallter 2000. The climb is 11 kilometers high and the average elevation is 7.6 percent to the ski station. The 4th stage turns from Ripoll to Port Ainé covering two intermediate climbs. The climb to the end averages 6.8 percent over its 18.5-kilometer range. Riders have to travel from La Pobla de Segur to Manresa on the 5th stage that looks like the stage is as usual.

The Volta a Catalunya moves to Mataró on the 6th stage that returns after 39 years. The last station in the geographic center of Catalonia dates back to 1982 when the spoils were taken by the Dutchman Johan van der Velde. The final stage finishes with six runs on Barcelona's hilly 6.6-kilometer Montjuic circuit.
