Volta a Catalunya 2021 start list

Provisional list of starters for the Volta a Catalunya in Spain from March 22-28

The start list has been confirmed for the upcoming Volta Ciclista a Catalunya (March 22-28) and by the looks of the line-up, the racing should be action-packed right from the outset.

The Spenish WorldTour race was one of many to be cancelled in 2020 due to the Covid-19 so the 100th edition was moved to 2021 in its usual spot in the calendar.

With the season well underway, some of the biggest names in climbing are set to race but defending champion from 2019, Miguel Ángel López (Movistar Team) is not down to return with his team fielding a Spanish trio of leaders in Enric Mas, Marc Soler and Alejandro Valverde.

Other big names that are currently down to race are Chris Froome, Dan Martin and Michael Woods (Israel Start-Up Nation), João Almeida (Deceuninck – Quick-Step), Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers), Nairo Quintana (Arkéa-Samsic) and Giulio Ciccone (Trek-Segafredo).

Another name that we are all waiting to see race for his new team is Swiss star, Marc Hirschi (UAE Team Emirates), who has been featured on multiple start lists before being removed a few days before race day, this has not happened this time with the Tour de France stage winner lining up as team leader for his new team.
