The Vuelta a Formosa Internacional starts this April 7 and runs until next Sunday with the presence of clubs or teams from eight countries: Ecuador, Brazil, Colombia, Bolivia, Paraguay, Holland, Panama and of course the Argentine organizers.
Gabriel Curuchet, president of the Cycling Union of the Argentine Republic (UCRA), highlighted in the presentation “the commitment assumed and fulfilled by the province of Formosa, and what this means for the development of sport, especially for cycling”.
For his part, Edgar Pérez, Executive Director of the event, stated: “It is a pride to welcome the best cyclists in America. That many know our province, since it is the first time they come, and our warmth. Hopefully the shirt that shines at the end, in addition to the sport shirt, will be the shirt of a united America.”
