The Girona Cycling Tour is your opportunity to come and ride where many professionals do with the local guides touch.

The cycling community keeps growing each year, more professional cyclists come to train and live during the season. The local team, once called Tiaa-Cref has become a first class UCI Pro Team. Now the Slipstream Team, sponsored by Garmin-Cervelo, will have a lot to win.
