On June 2nd, the 11th edition of the Marcha Jufré Riuprimer will be held, a cycling tour event organized by the Vic-ETB, the City Council of Santa Eulàlia de Riuprimer and Jufré Cycling, with the support of the Diputación de Barcelona. An event that hopes to bring together 800 participants, strengthening its growing popularity and positive impact in the region.

During the official presentation at the Santa Eulàlia de Riuprimer Town Hall, key figures participated such as the mayor Txevi Rovira, the sports councilor of Vic, Eduard Comerma, and the honored cyclist Martí Márquez. The test, known for its challenging route, offers two routes: one of 111 km with five passes and another of 154 km with seven passes, crossing various regions and standing out for its beauty and difficulty.

This year, there are already 700 registered cyclists, with a notable female participation, reflecting the growing interest in cycling. Half of the participants are federated, and the majority come from Osona and nearby regions, as well as from Barcelona and Girona.

The Marxa is not only a sporting event, but also an economic engine for the region. With 60% of the budget allocated to local companies and a direct impact on tourism, the event promotes the local and regional economy. Mayor Txevi Rovira and other organizers highlight the importance of the sport-tourism binomial for community development.

The event is based on four pillars: local products, quality of service, sustainability and participant satisfaction. This year, it will be inclusive, with the participation of athletes with disabilities from the Genesis Club, consolidating its reputation among the cycling tours of Catalonia.

The professional cyclist Martí Márquez, recently transferred to Santa Eulàlia de Riuprimer, will be the man of the day. The Kern Pharma cyclist, who will compete in the Campeonato de España on June 23, will be part of the list of runners who will start next Sunday.

The test will begin on June 2 with the delivery of numbers the day before. The first riders will arrive around midday, followed by a community meal, closing out an event that celebrates sport, community and tourism.
