The major novelty of La Rioja Bike Race 2019 will be its extra day of racing, in accordance with the new regulations of the International Cycling Union (UCI). It will be held from May 9 to 12 in Logroño and will have four circular stages starting and finishing in the capital of La Rioja.
The new format entails some logistical changes for the riders that the organisation intends to minimise, in order to keep it as similar as possible to its successful three-day format.
La Rioja Bike Race 2019 will start on Thursday afternoon with a short and easy stage to get the feel of the race, avoiding a great physical fatigue to the riders, and helping them to travel on the same day. Also, the start numbers can be collected during Thursday morning, maintaining the same nights stays.
Thus, La Rioja Bike Race 2019 ensures one more day of fun without the need to take an additional day off and hardly increasing the riders’ expenses.
La Rioja Bike Race 2019 registrations are now available on its website: www.lariojabikerace.com.
