Cycling with a Tour de France double winner, Alberto Contador

Do you want to ride with Alberto Contador? It's easy if you participate on September 29th in the Alberto Contador Sportive 2018 held in Oliva, in the Valencian Community. This year, the route is shorter than in the 2017 edition, but is more demanding. The participants will confront 167 kilometers, with 3100 meters of climbing, starting and ending at the Oliva Nova Beach & Golf Resort.

It's an especially attractive event due to its climate, with good temperatures for cycling. The route will pass through almost all of the province of Alicante, with climbs that include the Coll de Rates, Mur de Tollos and the Mirador del Xap, among others. The format of the march will be cyclo-race, so the participants will enjoy an event totally closed to traffic. The race will be organized in Oliva, an area where many teams train during the winter to prepare for competitions during the summer.

Some of the highlights include the Coll de Rates, on the dividing line between the Valencian regions of the Marina Alta, to the north, and the Marina Baixa, to the south, in the province of Alicante. The pass, with a height of 626 meters, combines Benidorm with Gandía. The pass consists of two sides. The south passes through to Parcent and in the north the first ramps begin in Callosa d'en Sarrià.

It will be the first time that Alberto Contador has participated in the event as an ex-professional cyclist. Contador will act as ambassador of the sportive that carries his name. His strength lies in climbing and, therefore, this tour fits him like a glove. Contador won the Tour de France in 2007 and 2009, The Giro de Italia in 2008 and 2015. In 2008, 2012 and 2014 he took the General Classification of the Vuelta de España. In addition, he will participate alongside Alberto Contador Ivan Basso, double winner of the Giro d'Italia. It will be a great duel between two climbers.
