Day by day breakdown

1

Warm Up Forna - 35km 270m

To begin our adventure, we’ll leave Oliva Beach for a recon ride. It's a relaxed 35 km route that should give you plenty of time to get acclimatized and make sure that everything on your bike works perfectly. The highlight of the day will be the middle of the ride when you reach the Forna Climb and the scenic Castle at the top.
2

Vall de Gallinera & Beniarrés - 94km 1250m

We’re heading inland towards Vall de Gallinera, considered one of the main beautiful areas in Spain. Here there were still Iberian wolves and wild horses, and waterfalls and natural lagoons. After a flat opening 16 km, this ride hits a lengthy climb to the village of Al Patro. We’re going to enjoy a stunning view of the mountains that reach the sea. From there, it’s all downhill until we get back to Oliva.
3

Vall d’Ebo - 59km 765m

After two days enjoying the sea we take the west side. We climb Vall d’Ebo, one of the icònic climbs in the area, with awesome views in the middle of la Marxal de Oliva. We can see the Mediterranean sea on one side and the west lands on the other. We descend to the town where we do a coffee stop before come back to the apartment.
4

Montgó - 75km 412m

We’re following the sea since we arrive at el Montgó; it’s a short climb with amazing views of the Mediterranean coast.
5

Coll de Rates - 85km 1300m

Today our itinerary arrives at the queen stage, when we ride the highest mountain road, where Pogacar, VanderPoel or Remco do their specific sessions.
6

Vall de Laguar - 69km 580m

On our last day, we’ll ride following the valley. We can see spectacular views in the middle of Vall de Laguar. We will arrive at Font del Gel, where many riders stop to refresh in the summer season. After good coffee we return to Oliva to prepare our fantastic evening.

Drop Off

This is our final morning together and after a leisurely breakfast, it will be time to say goodbye, until we meet again. Transfers to the airport will be arranged by our hard-working crew but if you’re planning on staying a few extra days, let us know if we can help with reservations or a few recommendations.

BIKES TO RIDE LIKE A PRO

TCR ADVANCED PRO Di2

Giant TCR Advanced

With a perfect stiffness-to-weight ratio and aerodynamic tube shapes, this frame set is designed for racing cyclists who demand climbing characteristics, aerodynamic efficiency and stiffness for sprinting.

This is the biggest quantifiable advantage of the TCR.

Integrated disc brakes provide smooth, powerful and measured stopping power for added control in changing weather and road conditions. New Shimano di2 12 speed, Flat mounts and new thru-axles increase stiffness and improve overall handling, while extra clearance in the frame and fork allows for wider tires up to 32 millimeters to run.
