BENISSA hosts the final stage of the 25th edition of the Alicante province Vuelta Ciclista cycle race on May 29.

The competitors will set out from Benissa’s Old Quarter before passing through several inland Marina Alta towns before going on Alcoy and finishing in Campello.

After a year with only token sporting events, the first signs of recovery are beginning to emerge, Benissa’s Sports councillor Adrian Cabrera commented.

“The town hall is investing €3,000 on restaurant meals and accommodation for the teams taking part in the race,” Cabrera said.

“This is directed at helping to revitalise and promote sectors that have suffered most during the economic crisis.”

Although he did not give details of his department’s future strategies, Cabrera predicted that sporting events were going to make a comeback and would be “even stronger” than before the pandemic.
