44th Volta ao Algarve with traditional route in 2018

The 2018 edition of the Volta ao Algarve will be on the road from 14 to 18 February. For the second consecutive year will be a 2.HC competition, the top category outside of WorldTour.
The five stages of the 2018 Volta ao Algarve will have similar characteristics to the stages of previous years. The route is still being drawn, but the concept remains the same of the recente past, offering opportunities to all types of cyclists.
The sprinters will have two opportunities to shine, as many as the uphill finishes, which will allow the climbers to take their place as candidates for the yellow jersey. Time trialists may also aspire to triumph, as there will be an individual time trial, which may mark some differences.
The host cities and the first confirmed teams will be announced in the coming weeks.
