Cycling in the country of the winner of the 2019 Tour de France
The “Escarabajos”, the Colombian cyclists, have long since been famous as mountain specialists and for their climbing abilities. However, with Fernando Gaviria and Álvaro Hodeg Colombia is now even represented by two world-class sprinters in the peloton of the WorldTour. Nairo Quintana and Rigoberto Urán are regularly fighting for top positions in the overall classification of the most important races in the world and Nairo has even won both the Giro d’Italia and the Vuelta a España. Unfortunately, up to now, he could not yet win the Tour de France. All the more Colombia is now celebrating Egan Bernal’s victory of this year’s Tour de France! Only a few years ago, he was just an exceptional talent, and now, in 2019, he wins the Tour de France at the age of just 22 years, making him Colombia’s and even Latin America’s first and the third youngest winner ever in the history of the Tour de France!
Cycling is the most popular sport in Colombia and hardly any other country has currently so many and so high potential climbing talents like Colombia. Why is that? See it for yourself! Spend unforgettable road cycling holidays with Elite Cycling Colombia and get to know this cycling paradise in northwestern South America!
Ideal training conditions
Cyclists find ideal conditions in Colombia: the Andes with their massive mountain masses shape the country and make Colombia one of the best training grounds for cyclists worldwide. Due to the proximity to the equator, almost perfect climatic conditions allow training at well over 2,000 m altitude with pleasant temperatures throughout the year! Especially the area around Medellin offers everything that makes the cyclist’s heart beat faster. Breathtaking mountain scenery and a lush nature paired with well-developed roads make cycling in Colombia a fantastic experience. So, if you are looking for a warm winter cycling destination, a fantastic destination for a cycling camp or just an amazing place for road cycling, here you will find the perfect conditions for your cycling holidays!
