The sixth edition of La Purito Andorra – Andbank Grand Prix, the non-competitive cycling event created by Joaquim Rodríguez, will take place over the second weekend in September this year.
Following in the footsteps of previous editions, La Purito Andorra – Andbank Grand Prix will bring together cycling enthusiasts from various countries. This non-competitive cycling event, created by former professional cyclist Joaquim Rodríguez Oliver, will exceptionally be held on Saturday 13 September this year and is open to cyclists of all levels, who can sign up for one of the three routes offered by the organisers: 120 km, with an elevation gain of 4,800 m; 80 km, with an elevation gain of 3,500 m; or 28 km, with an elevation gain of 1,700 m.
Ever since the first edition, the long option of La Purito Andorra – Andbank Grand Prix has followed the route of the eleventh and now legendary queen stage of the 2015 Vuelta a España. This stage is considered by many specialists as one of the hardest in the history of the Spanish cycling tour. Joaquim Rodríguez completed it that year, although the victory for the stage went to Basque rider Mikel Landa.
