Full list of starters for the Volta a Catalunya in Spain from March 20-26

TAGS:
The final start list has been confirmed for the upcoming Volta Ciclista a Catalunya (March 20-26) and by the looks of the line-up the racing should be action packed right from the outset.

With the season now well underway the Grand Tour contenders are upping their training in a bid to be in the best shape before the main targets of the season.

Three-time Tour de France winner Chris Froome (Team Sky) will be riding his first race since the Herald Sun Tour at the start of the year having completed a lengthy spell of altitude training in South Africa with Geraint Thomas, who is also on the start list.

Alberto Contador (Trek-Segafredo) and Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) will be Spain’s main hopes in the general classification. Contador finished second last year behind Nairo Quintana (Movistar), and Valverde has also had a couple of second place finishes in recent years.

Briton Adam Yates will lead Orica-Scott’s charge in Catalunya, the 24-year-old will be riding the Giro d’Italia this year so this could be good preparation for the first Grand Tour come May.
