The Valencian Community is once again the favorite destination for most of the World Team teams to conduct the 2023 preseasonbecause fourteen of the eighteen that make up the elite of international cycling have chosen a location in this territory for their set-up.

Waiting for the International Cycling Union (UCI) to announce in the coming days which teams will form the elite category of international cycling from 2023 to 2025, those previously called to do so have already announced their destinations to perform their respective concentrations starting this December and they all chose the Spanish Mediterranean, thanks to the climate, orography and state of the roads.

If the Valencian Community puts together three quarters of the men’s teams, the rest will go to Mallorca, Almería and Girona.

The Alicante town of Altea will host the most teams with a total of five. So squads like Astana, Bahrain, BikeExhange-Jayco, Groupama-FDJ and Arkea-Samsic will start rolling on their roads this December.
