The Volta á Portugal, 2014

A couple of weeks after the Volta á Portugal do Futuro passes through Oiã and Carris, the big race, the Volta á Portugal, starts. Normally, the smaller race takes the same route as the main race, which means that we get two national races passing by within a couple of weeks, and few can say that.

This year I wanted to get the more classical front view of the racers, so I picked a spot with a straight piece of road. after the lead cars and the police cyclists had gone by, I waited a couple of minutes and the cyclists were there – and gone! As the race started in Oliveira do Bairro this year, the racers were all clustered together, which meant for 10 minutes of waiting and 30 seconds of excitement.
