Finally, after the postponement of the Challenge de Mallorca, Vuelta a la Comunidad Valencia and Vuelta a Murcia, Alejandro Valverde’s 2021 starts next Sunday at the Clásica de Almería. Close to home, on roads that both Alejandro himself and the entire Movistar Team know from his recent winter concentration.
It is a race of 183 kilometers destined to be resolved in a massive arrival, despite the four climbs that mark the intermediate part of the route. The target is trying to accumulate quality kilometers and refine the form before more propitious and upcoming challenges.
Together with Valverde, Movistar presents a very young block with the premieres as blue of Iván García Cortina and Gonzalo Serrano. The Asturian will be the main asset of the team together with the British Gabriel Cullaigh. The German Hollmann, the Swiss Jacobs and the Danish Norsgaard will also start.
