The third edition of YoPRO Catalunya Bike Race will have four stages in accordance with the new regulations of the International Cycling Union (UCI). It will be held from September 26 to 29 in La Cerdanya and will have four circular stages with start and finish in Puigcerdà.
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 and MMR Asturias Bike Race 2019 serve us as a sample, which already incorporated the new format starting with a short and easy stage on Thursday afternoon followed by three marathon stages.
YoPRO Catalunya 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, YoPRO Catalunya Bike Race 2019 ensures one more day of fun without the need to take an additional day off and hardly increasing the riders’ expenses.
YoPRO Catalunya Bike Race 2019 registrations are now available here.

The third edition of YoPRO Catalunya Bike Race will have spectacular views along the incredible trails of the Catalan Pyrenees where the best national Mountain Bikers will race, thus consolidating a benchmark in the calendar.
One more year José Antonio Hermida who has been in charge of the design of the route, and Clàudia Galicia, current Spanish Cross Country Champion, will be the ambassadors of a third edition that incorporates new features, in addition to its fourth day of competition.
