Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana (2.Pro)

Winners, podium, distance, average speed

The Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana is a stage race with a venerable history, dating back to its first edition in 1929 (won by Salvador Cardona).

Since the last recession, the race has has been plagued with financial problems. The last edition until 2016 was run in 2008. Organizers tried to run the race in 2010 and 2011, but were unsuccessful.

Former racing pro Angel Casero tried to get the race going again in 2015, but was unsuccessful. But in 2016 the race found its legs.

It is currently an early season race, occupying a place on the February racing calender.
