Costa Blanca cycle race seen as a ‘tribute’ to those that suffered September flooding

The General Director of the Tour, Ángel Casero, recognised the route as a homage to those that suffered in September’s catastrophic gota fria and floods that followed.

He said, “We are going to make this little tribute at the nerve point of the unfortunate DANA and it is our recognition so that people can be watching the tour from the door of their house.”

Emilio Bascuñana, Mayor of Orihuela, highlighted, “this gesture of sensitivity on the part of the organization in doing this stage (here) is a way to keep in mind the floods of September”.

Orihuela’s Mayor of Sports, Víctor Bernabéu, said, “I want to remember that they will pass through the areas most affected by the DANA, giving some joy to the citizens of Orihuela.”

The tour continued through the districts of El Escorratel, Hurchillo, La Murada, Molins as well as by others Vega Baja locations to finish in Torrevieja.
