VolCAT 2019 starts to take shape07-09-2018
Four stages, 200 km and a 5,000-metres of elevation gain!
More days. More stages. More kilometres. More mountain biking.
Both professional and amateur riders are waiting expectantly for the changes to VolCAT 2019. As they gradually come to light, the forthcoming edition is beginning to look like an adventure to remember.
With an increase in the number of stages, the organisation has designed tracks that will see riders tackle approximately 200 km with more than 5,000 metres of elevation gain in a test that will be divided up as follows:
1st stage: 35 km and 800 metres +
2nd stage: 65 km and 1,700 metres +
3rd stage: 65 km and 1,600 metres +
4th stage: 35 km and 900 metres +
Four stages that will start and finish in Igualada, passing through villages in the heart of Catalonia, such as Carme, Castellolí and Sant Martí de Tous. Pure BTT tracks!
Greater convenience for participants
The first stage of VolCAT 2019, which takes place on the Thursday, will be held in the afternoon in order to facilitate the arrival of participants.
As a UCI S2 category event it represents a great challenge for the 1,000 participants from over 25 countries seeking to achieve a certain position or to be a finisher at an essential event for all cyclists.
The feeling of reaching the finishing line is indescribable and the 2019 edition is set to be an even greater test due to the addition of an extra stage, allowing the participants to no doubt savour their mountain experience.
You won’t be alone
You can also share your goal with your nearest and dearest who can cheer you on at points along the track or wait for you whilst enjoying themselves at the festival’s main hub, where different events for the whole family will take place, such as VolCAT Kids.
Or maybe you wish to fulfil a joint challenge with your partner in the mountains. If that’s the case, you can participate in the couple’s category, which will consist of men’s, women’s and mixed categories. There’s no better outing than one shared with your loved ones.
