Valencia is the second most mountainous region in Spain playing host to many of the decisive stages for La Vuelta a España and Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana, two of the oldest and most prestigious stage races in professional cycling. The roll call of winners, from past champions Van Looy, Merckx, Hinault and Roche, to the modern greats Contador, Quintana and Valverde, have all triumphed on the slopes of the toughest mountains the region has to offer.
