Volta Ciclista a Catalunya 2013

The 93rd edition of the Volta Ciclista a Catalunya has attracted a strong field, including a number of likely contenders for Giro d'Italia and Tour de France honours.

 

Among those lining up in the seven-day race are Sky's Bradley Wiggins, Movistar duo Alejandro Valverde and Nairo Quintana, Giro champion Ryder Hesjedal (Garmin-Sharp), BMC's Cadel Evans, Lampre's Michele Scarponi and local favourite Joaquim Rodríguez (Katusha).

 

The race will pay tribute to the 100th edition of the Tour de France in the shape of a daily sprint for which a jersey and special prize will be awarded. Also, the penultimate day pays tribute to Xavier Tondo with the stage finish in his home town of Valls in front of the Xavier Tondo Sports Centre.
