Like the Tour de France, Vuelta a España and Giro d’Italia, the Volta a Portugal is one of the oldest bike races in the world.

The Volta a Portugal has been taking place since 1927 and is part of the international competitions of the International Cycling Union (UCI), an association that integrates the national cycling federations of several countries.

On the Volta a Portugal, cyclists ride the Portuguese roads, facing various degrees of difficulty, such as time trials, where the fastest sprinters take advantage, and uphilltrials with winding climbs and descents, where the “climbers” stand out.

Throughout the stages, “runners” make the most of their physical and technical capabilities, supported by their teams (domestic and foreign).
