Andorra 21 Ports, an amateur cycling stage race through the most emblematic mountain passes (called ports in Andorra), will return in 2022, taking place 24-26 June in the Principality’s capital. Over three stages and 300 kilometers with more than 8000 meters of vertical ascent in the Pyrenees, the event is guaranteed to get hearts pounding, legs burning and sweat dripping.
The route will take cyclists along the most spectacular Andorran roads lined with stunning views, which have been the backdrop for many epic battles in the Tour de France and the Vuelta a España.
The 1st stage, which is 88 km long with a difference in altitude of 2380 m, will climb to Port d’Envalira (2400 m), the highest point in the race; Els Cortals d’Encamp (2083 m) and the Comella pass (1347 m).
The 2nd stage, which is 106 km long with a difference in altitude of 2900 m, climbs the Collada de Beixalís (1796 m), and the peaks of Coma d’Arcalís (2229 m) and Cabús (2302 m).
The 3rd and final stage, which is also 106 km long with a difference in altitude of 3100 m, will climb up to Coll d’Ordino (1980 m), Coll de la Peguera (1821 m) and Coll de la Gallina (1910 m).
