Clásica de Almería (1.1), Spain

Winners, podium, distance, average speed

The Clásica de Almería is a single-day road race held in the Andalusia (southeast Spain). The race currently (2015) starts in Almería.

Originally an amateur race, first run in 1986, the event became a professional event in 1992. Over the years it was upgraded from 1.4 until it was classed 1.1 in 2005. Im 2012 it was classed "HC" but was dowgraded to 1.1 for 2014. In 2015 it was again given "HC" status and currently (2017) it is a 1.1 competition.

The race has traditionally been run in late February or early March. In 2015 it was moved to mid-February.

In 2007, winner Giuseppe Muraglia was later in the year found positive for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. To the best of my knowledge the 2007 event has no winner.
