Montemuro Granfondo by Trek 2019
pays homage to Venceslau Fernandes

The first Bikeservice Granfondo of this season, the Montemuro Granfondo by Trek 2019, will pay homage to one of the most charismatic figures of Portuguese cycling. Venceslau Fernandes will be the number 1 rider of the event that takes the peloton to touch the sky, at 1200 meters of altitude on the magical Montemuro Mountain.

Eight days before turning 74, the Montemuro Granfondo by Trek 2019 will be an excellent opportunity to sing "happy birthday" to "Velho Lau" (Old Lau), whose victory in the 1984 Tour of Portugal was the highest point of a professional career that lasted a quarter of a century.
