The European road racing season continues on Sunday with the Clásica de Almería, the second day of racing in Spain and the second Pro-category race of 2021 so far.
The one-day race, with a classification just one slot under WorldTour level, is held in the coastal town of Almería in the east of Andalusia in southern Spain and has been won the past two years by Bora-Hansgrohe sprinter Pascal Ackermann. The German will not, however, be back to defend his title on February 14.
There will be plenty of competition to take over where the German left off in the sprinter's classic, with Qhubeka Assos' Giacomo Nizzolo also among the favourites, along with Mark Cavendish, who makes his second Deceuninck-QuickStep debut after returning to the team following a five-year absence.

Matteo Moschetti is Trek-Segafredo's sprinter, while compatriots Fabio Sabatini and Simone Consonni take the reins for Cofidis. Luka Mezgec, who took third in Almería in 2019, is set to lead Team BikeExchange.
Marc Sarreau leads AG2R Citroën and Timothy Dupont leads Bingoal-Wallonie Bruxelles. Home favourites include Mikel Aristi (Euskaltel-Euskadi) and Jon Aberasturi (Caja Rural-Seguros RGA).
