Alberto Contador will be the n.1 on the Love Tiles Douro Granfondo

In the best Granfondo, the greatest of stars! The 2018 edition of Love Tiles Douro Granfondo will have as number n.1 the one that was undoubtedly the best rider of his generation and one of the best ever: Alberto Contador, El Pistoleiro.

Winner of seven Grand Tours (2 Tour de France, 2 Giro and 3 Vueltas), which put him in the fourth place of the greatest winners in history, along with Indurain and Coppi and only behind Merckx, Hinault and Anquetil, Contador left a legacy of attacking cycling  complemented by an image of humility that made him an idol of the fans. The way he said goodbye was iconic, with a spectacular victory at Alto do Angliru, in the last stage of the Tour of Spain.

Alberto Contador succeeds other greats in the history of cycling that have been the stars of Bikeservice's Granfondos, such as the also Spaniards Indurain, Pedro Delgado and Oscar Freire, the Italian Francesco Moser or the Australian Michael Rogers.

Love Tiles Douro Granfondo will take place on May 6, with departure and arrival in Peso da Régua, in the very heart of Alto Douro Vinhateiro.
