Volta ao Algarve Postponed
Updated: Jan 29, 2021
More unfortunate news has come to pass, with the Portuguese Cycling Association postponing the Volta ao Algarve which was intended to take place from 17 to 21 February. It is another in a series of cancellations and postponements, following the cancellation of the Vuelta a San Juan last week. Both races were won by Remco Evenepoel last year and serve as exciting stage races as the WorldTour season builds up. Amid the postponements has come rising speculation that the UCI may need to postpone the entire racing season until the summer, to allow the COVID-19 situation to improve across the globe. These are worrying times indeed, for both the health of the public and the enjoyment of the cycling fans. Here’s hoping the situation will get better sooner rather than later.
The new provisional date for the rescheduled Volta ao Algrave is from 5 to 9 May, but is subject to change and approval from the International Cycling Union.
