I WANT TO GO!

For yet another year, local cycling enthusiasts, as well as aficionados from Spain, France and the rest of Europe will gather in Andorra for La Purito. This cycling tour was established by Andorra's Sprint Club in collaboration with cyclist Joaquim Rodríguez Oliver, who is known for his love of the Principality's mountain passes. The 2017 edition of the event will be held on 6 August and open to cyclists of all levels. In addition to the tour, this year La Purito will also host a gathering of cycling schools.

La Purito 2017 itinerary
As usual, La Purito 2017 will pass through the same legendary roads as the famous Blue Riband stage (stage 11) of the 2015 edition of the Vuelta de España, considered by many as the toughest stage in the history of the Spanish cycling tour. Although Joaquim Rodríguez finished the Blue Riband stage of that edition, Mikel Landa came in first. 

La Purito's itinerary begins in Sant Julià de Lòria, from where participants conquer the mountain passes of Collada de Beixalís, Collada de Ordino, Alt de la Rabassa, Collada de la Gallina, Alt de la Comella, and lastly, the finish line, atop Cortals d'Encamp. The total distance is of 145 km. In addition to this itinerary, which is the longest and the toughest, there are two other, shorter routes: The beginner-level route is 25 km long and the intermediate-level route is 80 km in length, so that cycling enthusiasts of all levels can experience the thrill of La Purito.
