Gustavo César Veloso shines in the peloton at 40

The cyclist from Vilagarcía de Arousa won the final time of the Volta a Portugal and is the Spanish rider with the most victories so far in the 2020 season.


Gustavo César Veloso took the last stage of the Volta to Portugal on Monday in the final time trial in Lisbon. At 40 years old, the Galician cyclist continues to reap triumphs in his fetish event, where he won the general classification in 2014 and 2015, in addition to achieving 12 stage victories, and where this year he has been second after his partner in W52 - FC Porto, Portuguese Amaro Antunes.

Veloso's victory, who also took the prologue to the Portuguese round, is the thirteenth Spanish victory of the season on the international calendar and makes the Galician cyclist the only one who has been able to repeat his victory this season.

Veloso, who came to compete in the ranks of Kaiku and Xacobeo-Galicia and who has a stage win in the Xorret de Catí in the Vuelta a España in 2009 and the general of the Volta a Catalunya in 2008, continues enjoying his passion for cycling although far from the great events of the World Tour.

After starting his career in Portugal with Boavista and passing through Relax-Bodysol, Kaiku, Xacobeo-Galicia and Andalucía-Caja Granada, Veloso returned to Portuguese cycling in the ranks of Quinta da Lixa, the team with which he conquered the Volta a Portugal twice before he changed his name to W52 / FC Porto in 2016. At 40 years old, Veloso is still motivated to continue competing and adding triumphs for Spanish cycling.
