About La Vuelta a España
As the final Grand Tour of the year, the Vuelta a España is seen by many as the last chance for those riders who have failed to hit their seasonal objectives in the prior two tours. However, much more than that it's anything-can-happen nature thanks to some of the steepest summit finishes, promises a three-week filled event of actions on edge of your seat entertainment.
Created to boost the sales of a Spanish newspaper, Informaciones, the race holds the same prestige as the Giro and TdF. First created in 1935, it takes place in Spain, including two ITTs, mountain stages in the Pyrenees and the finish in the capital of Madrid.
This year’s route is typical of La Vuelta, with mountainous stages in the Spanish Pyrenees and rugged Basque Country peppered throughout the race. Can the defending champion, Primož Roglič, take a third successive title and score a historic hat-trick? Or will we see a new victor emerge?
