Following the celebration of the national road championships, held last weekend in Paysandú, this week in Uruguay the 51st edition of the traditional American Routes will take place.

This men’s race, which is currently not part of the América Tour, has its history in South America and always attracts many cyclists.

Organized by the Fénix Cycling Club, the cycling competition is attended by 30 teams. One of these comes from Brazil and the rest are all Uruguayan nationals.

This year, Rutas de América 2023 began on Thursday, February 16, with an individual time trial as a prologue, which was won by Matías Presa.

The race will end on Sunday the 26th in Montevideo. In total there will be 11 days of cycling (10 stages without counting the prologue), with a total of more than 1,500 kilometers.

The competition route will be extensive, since the passage of cyclists will take place in 13 departments: Lavalleja, Durazno, Treinta y Tres, Cerro Largo, Florida, Colonia, Soriano, Río Negro, Flores, Canelones, San José, Maldonado and Montevideo.

The last champion is the Cordovan (Argentine) Jorge Giacinti. A highly recognized cyclist who has an excellent past in San Juan, the Argentine capital of cycling.
