Vuelta a Murcia 2020

La Vuelta Ciclista a la Region de Murcia is a professional cycling race that takes place in the region of Murcia in Spain and that will compete from 14th February to 15th February of 2020. The previous editions were played in March.

It was created in 1981 as an amateur competition, but the first winner was Perico Delgado, who would win the Tour de France in 1988. After spending four years in unofficial national categories, in 1989 he became completely professional in the international calendar.

In the route, it is very common to include the Alto del Collado Bermejo, a hill that usually makes a difference and that since 2004 is called Cima Marco Pantani, in honor of the Italian cyclist winner of the 1999 edition.

Since its creation, it had 5 or 6 stages, but in recent years it has been reduced to 3 and 2 stages and since 2013 it was a one-day race advancing the dispute date to February. But in 2020, for the 40th edition will be again a stage race, and will have 2 stages. By 2020 it will be a competition classified as category 2.1 within the UCI calendar.
