9-20 August 2023


Eleven days of racing for the Tour of Portugal 2023. Scheduled from 9 to 20 August, the Portuguese stage race confirms itself as the longest race on the international calendar after the three Grand Tours, proposing a route in which there will obviously be no lack of altimetrical difficulties. The race, however, will open and close with time trials: the first will be a short prologue of 3600 metres in Viseu, the second a test of 18.2 kilometres that will finish uphill in Viana do Castelo, where the successor of Mauricio Moreira, winner a year ago, will be crowned. There will be three high altitude finishes: at Torre, which will be close to 2,000 metres, at Montalegre, on the Serra do Larouco, and at the sanctuary of Nossa Senhora da Graça, above Mondim de Basto, but the riders will also have to tackle some intermediate stages that could be just as important in terms of the general classification.
