Lisbon, Portugal to Malaga, Spain
The 10th edition of the Allianz Cyclist Tour takes place from June 16 to June 23, 2017 and covers 602 miles (970km) with 32,808 feet (10,000 meters) of elevation. Another challenging tour for sure!
The main characteristics of this 10th edition will be the beautiful landscapes, the cities of Portugal and south of Spain, the food, wine and… the sun. For climbers, the 2513 meters high Sierra Nevada will represent a superb opportunity to test themselves.

Last year I created a weekly training journal to document my preparation for the Tour. This year I’ve not had the time to do the same, so everything related to my rides are detailed on my Strava athlete page.
