Maté’s Journey from the Saudi Arabian Desert to Spanish Classics

Before the Vuelta a Andalucía, Maté will compete in three consecutive classics, following his stint in the Saudi Arabian desert at the AlUla Tour. On Saturday, February 10, the Marbella cyclist will participate in the Vuelta a la Región de Murcia Costa Cálida, a 199-kilometer race.
