This weekend San Juan will once again host the Argentine Road Cycling Championships 2022 and although initially the circuits would go to the Ullum and Punta Negra dams, they were finally modified and All activity will focus on the Avenida de Circunvalación and the San Juan-Villicum Circuit. This was reported from the Sanjuanina Cycling Federation on the afternoon of this Tuesday. The San Juan entity together with the Argentine Federation of Track and Road Cycling (FACPyR) are the organizers of the tests.
The changes of routes are due purely and exclusively to a request from the tourism providers. With almost full hotel reservations in the province and taking into account that the Ullum and Punta Negra dams are the chosen tourist destination par excellence, they understand that roadblocks can discourage tourists.
In this way, the Argentinian will distribute its activity Friday and Sunday on the Avenida de Circunvalación, while on Saturday everything will focus on the albardonero layout. On Friday there will be individual time trials in the Circunvalación, this road will be closed from 11 am to 6:30 pm, the section of the Circunvalación between General Acha and Mendoza will be closed from 7, since the podium will be set up there.
