The Porto–Lisboa was a road cycling race held in Portugal in 10 June every year to celebrate the Portugal Day. Covering a distance of approximately 330 kilometres, the race was the longest in the professional calendar after the disappearance of Bordeaux–Paris in 1988. It would start at Porto, the second most important city in Portugal, and finish in the Portuguese capital Lisboa around eight or nine hours later.
Although it was the most important classic in Portugal, it required special training and in late years it was usually only raced by Portuguese cycling teams. Porto–Lisboa 2002 was raced as a team-race divided in three sectors between Porto and Lisboa.
