Stage 2 – Serra do caldeirão - 88.5kms - 2000 mts elevation

​After the intense and full of adrenaline start with the Algarve Bike Challenge night prologue it will be time to face the longest

stage of the race!

The 2nd Stage is an epic 88.5km course over the Algarve's mountains, in the Serra do Caldeirão. From the sea level up to 500mts high this day promises to be challenging but memorable.

For 2019 the riders will have less steep and really hard climbs and will face more singletracks and technical passages. The first part of this stage will be more on gravel double tracks until they reach the highest point in Arimbo where the first water point is located. After that the the stage changes completely with plenty of singletracks and fast sections.

The novelty for this edition will be the creation of the enduro sections. In this stage the enduro section will be between km 42.5 and km 46. In this day you will find and pass by old and remote small villages lost in time..
