The 2019 edition of the Volta a Catalunya will have a virtual version thanks to the Bkool simulator. Cycling fans will be able to enjoy the route of the 99th edition of the race from their houses.

The Bkool simulator has become the Official Supplier of the Spanish race and along with the organisation has designed a contest to encourage and improve the user experience with the tough routes, an online competition with prizes included.

"La Volta is competition, history and tradition, but with this collaboration shows that it is also modern," said the president of the Volta Ciclista a Catalunya Ruben Peris. "We want to reach a younger and cyclist audience."

"For Bkool it is a big step to offer its platform to races such as the Volta so that we can organize an online version for a World Tour race," added marketing director of Bkool Javier Cepedano. "We are a simulator of real cycling routes, and doing a virtual competition based on the routes of a professional tour is exciting for us."

With the help of a roller and the simulator, the fans can fight virtually against riders like Chris Froome, Alejandro Valverde and Romain Bardet, and win the prize to attend the final day of the race in the Barcelona stage. The first three will be awarded a Bkool Smart Air roller.
