Registrations for the Marcha Alberto Contador will open on Thursday, the 22nd of March, for what will be one of its most demanding editions. The event will take place in Oliva, Valencia, on the 29th of September and the number of participants will be limited to 2000. 

With a shorter, yet more demanding, route than the one featuring in last year's edition, participants will face 167 kilometres, including an overall positive climb of 3100 metres, on roads that will be completely closed off to traffic. With the departure and arrival at the Oliva Nova Beach & Golf Resort, the route will travel mainly through the Province of Alicante, with climbs up the Coll de Rates, Mur de Tollos and the Mirador del Xap, among others.

The cyclosportive's eighth edition will be the first for Alberto Contador as an ex professional cyclist. The Alberto Contador Foundation and the company 312 Bike & Tours, will hold an attractive event, through which they aim to become a call for all national and international cyclotourists. 

The online registration platform can be found on the following website:
