An international competition
Teams from Spain, France, Portugal, Russia, Italy, Kuwait, Dubai or Colombia will take part in one of the programmed dates on the calendar, a test for those who want to participate in the three week races that take place in the Summer season.
The first stage will happen on Saturday the 7th of May, with the starting point and finish line being in the Las Rozas town. A very tough stage, mid-mountain, that will start at 9:30am and will pass through some of the most astonishing spots of the Autonomous Community of Madrid. Over 160km and six ports will have much to say when it comes down to resolving who wins the race.
