An eternal ‘thank you’ to Alejandro Valverde


The Murcian cyclist will live today in Alhama a day of applause and recognition of his career in the stage that leaves the ElPozo facilities

Today will be special for Alejandro Valverde. The Bala will receive its special tribute in the stage that touches part of the region, starting from the facilities of ElPozo Alimentación, in Alhama, and ending in Cabo de Gata, after passing Totana and Lorca, in the year it is planned to end your successful professional career. The 42-year-old Movistar rider will be sheltered in his country, as he is in all stages of the current edition of the Vuelta. In yesterday’s time trial between Elche and Alicante, many fans expressed their admiration for the champion of Las Lumbreras, thanking them for his successes and his professionalism on the bike during so many years on the front line.

Today’s signature check will take place between 11:30 AM and 12:30 PM at ElPozo Alimentación and the actual start is at 12:35 PM on Antonio Fuertes Avenue towards Totana on the N-340. The peloton will pass Ginés Campos Avenue, Juan Carlos I Street, Constitución Avenue, Rambla de Don Diego and Camino del Almendrico before taking the exit that will be launched on the N-340 after 4.7 miles from where it will lead to Totana, where the runners will pass at 1:01 PM. The day continues towards La Hoya (1:18 AM) and then continues through Lorca (1:31 AM) via Europa Avenue, Juan Carlos I and Alameda de Cervantes. The race turns right towards Campillo along the RM-620 and leaves the region via La Campana (14.06) to enter Almería.

Alejandro Valverde, who won the 2009 edition and has also been on the podium five times, will experience one of its most special events today in the eleventh stage of the Spanish round. He was at the presentation of this year’s edition last December and made it clear that he would love to “raise his arms”. The Murcian runner was 29 years old when he won the Vuelta a España in 2009. Now he dreams of saying goodbye with a stage win.
