Dorsal 1

Rui Sousa at Gerês Granfondo by Trek 2019 as number 1

The organization of the Gerês Granfondo by Trek 2019 has the honor to announce as dorsal number 1 and special guest a longtime friend who was also one of the best and most popular Portuguese professional cyclists of this century. We talk about Rui Sousa, who has participated in this event several times and will now be the target of a well-deserved tribute.
At age 42, Rui Sousa has been for the last two years away from professionalism, after a career in which he stood out for longevity (20 seasons) and good results. He was a national champion, won five stages on the Tour of Portugal and went up to the podium that same amount of times - a second and four third places - just missing the dream of the final victory.
