Conselleria allocates € 50,000 to III Setmana Ciclista Valenciana
The Regional Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Sports of Generalitat Valenciana has granted III Setmana Ciclista Valenciana - Vuelta Comunidad Valenciana Feminias with 50.000 euros.
This contribution has been allocated to Setmana Ciclista Valenciana - Vuelta Comunidad Valenciana Féminas, that is celebrated from February 21st to 24th in 2019. The director of Setmana Ciclista Valenciana, Rubén Donet, has once again referred to Generalitat Valenciana as "one of the fundamental pillars of the race" and has incidided that thanks to the economic support of regional government "we have been able to continue to grow and get off the ground a test that is already a benchmark for women's cycling in Spain and abroad, proof of this is the large quantity and quality of participation in 2019, with nine of the ten best teams in the world".
The race was born in 2016 with an internacional character, included in 2.2 UCI calendar. "For the third consecutive year we have managed to maintain this status thanks in large part to the grant from Conselleria of Education, Culture, Research and Sports. In this way we can count on world-class teams and runners that are currently the best in the world".
Finally Donet noted the importance of the implication of institutions in projects like Setmana Ciclista Valenciana "that seek to facilitate women's access to top-level sport on equal terms with men, as well as to recognize and project their achievements and deeds".
