They cancel the Dénia stage of the Volta Ciclista to the Valencian Community due to the lack of civil guards

February 09 from 2024 - 12: 52

The organization of the Volta Ciclista a la Comunitat Valenciana in the Master, Elite and Sub23 categories, whose third stage ran through Dénia on February 18, has informed the Dénia City Council that they have to move the celebration of that day to another location due to the lack of civil guard troops during the entire route of the 89 kilometers inside the city. Marina Alta.

The Department of Sports regrets not being able to celebrate this cycling day in Dénia, "but the main causes of the modification of the Volta route are beyond the control of this City Council."

    The Civil Guard are not employees of the cyclists, they have other more important jobs to do.

      Sorry, they are paid by the public and yes they have the obligation to cover the race, the other thing is that it is not interesting because they have others or they do not give them the means but for the protests they are

        Sorry to tell you. In other sports, they pay for their own security. In cycling they are gentlemen on that subject, plus a test like that requires a lot of troops, which would reduce security in other areas. Let them pay for the security themselves. At most, with 4 civil guards, more than enough, two for the beginning of the security capsule and two to close it, the internal security of the capsule, let them pay for it.

    It's just as bad that last summer's return wasn't seen on TV.

    I think it is due to lack of budget if, in addition to the Germanor sopar tent, they took away the subsidies from the Moorish Fallas and bullfighting clubs, with that money they could pay Marlaska for the fee of the Cibil Fuardia.

    Hahaha
    One more ridiculous
    They announce with great fanfare a stage of the Volta a la Comunitat with departure and arrival in Denia and…. Zasca!… another blow of reality!
    There are not enough services or personnel in Denia to guarantee security and they go to another more civilized place.

      Hope that Pepa Font fixes this in one fell swoop,

        At the moment who has to solve it is the current City Council, so progressive they are. They only serve to paint benches pink and place various flags on the balcony.
        It remains a disaster how they have the works and the cleaning
