PROFESSIONAL RIDERS/ROUTE ALTERATIONS

We are proud to work with several professional cycling teams and riders. Professional riders bring their skills and expertise to our Events and they are always keen to share the experience with you.

We endeavour to secure a pro rider for every Event. However, due to pro rider competition calendars, training requirements and fitness, we can never guarantee there will be a pro rider present on an Event.

At Volta Pro Tours we prefer to adapt our routes to suit the capabilities of the riders – ensuring all riders complete each day feeling challenged but not overwhelmed.

We reserve the right to change the routes to those advertised or displayed on our website.
