Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana 2021 start list

The Spanish stage race is set for a host of big riders in its new slot in the 2021 calendar

The Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana 2021 is set to take place on April 14 after it was postponed earlier in the year due to Covid-19.

Among the big names starting at the Volta a Valenciana are Caleb Ewan (Lotto-Soudal), Arnaud Démare (Groupama-FDJ) and Enric Mas (Movistar).

The five-stage race kicks off on Wednesday (April 14) with a mix of testing lumpy stages, flat sprint opportunities, a summit finish and an individual time trial on stage four.

Last year’s edition was won by Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates), with Jack Haig (Bahrain Victorious) and Tao Geoghegan Hart (Ineos Grenadiers) rounding out the podium.

This year’s line-up does not see Pogačar or even his team return to race in 2021 along with various other top teams. This has meant that some smaller teams have been able to field up to nine riders. Just four WorldTour teams are in attendance.
