@Cycling @Ciclismo #Portugal 42nd @AlgarveTour @VoltaaoAlgarve 2016



The 42nd edition of the Tour of the Algarve cycling, to be held from 17 to 21 February 2016, will finish on top of Malhão (Loulé), with the emblematic climb to crown the ultimate winner. The route of the 'Algarve', which is still being finalized, will have features similar to previous years, with steps to the trial stage specialists , sprinters and climbers, with the biggest news being the option of putting the decisive arrival at Malhão the last day, so that, according to the statement of the Portuguese Cycling Federation (PCF), "there is emotion when challenging for the yellow jersey until the last meter".
