The AP Maria Nova Lounge Hotel is, for the third consecutive year, on the jerseys of the Clube de Ciclismo de Tavira team in the 83rd edition of the Volta a Portugal cycling tour.

The Atum-General/Tavira/AP Maria Nova Hotel team, maintaining the great cycling tradition of the city of Tavira, is present in the 83rd edition of the Volta a Portugal, with seven cyclists, where the veteran Alejandro Marque stands out, a Galician cyclist who is due to bid farewell to the activity this year and who won the Volta in 2013.

The team’s sports director, Vidal Fitas, defined the goal for this Tour of Portugal, in statements to the Lusa news agency:
“The realistic objective of Atum General-Tavira-AP Maria Nova Hotel is to fight for the podium in the 83rd Volta a Portugal, although he does not exclude fighting for the yellow, should the opportunity arise for Alejandro Marque to bid a grand farewell to the peloton.”
