Vuelta a Espana

This year’s Vuelta a España marks the 75th edition of the race and, despite being delayed as part of the revised UCI calendar, the race still features everything we’d expect from the Spanish Grand Tour, with iconic mountain passes and legendary climbs.

The race, reduced from 21 to 18 stages, started on Tuesday 20 October and will finish in Madrid this Sunday 8 November. Riders will have covered a total distance of 2,882.8km, made up of four flat stages, eight hilly stages, five mountain stages and one individual time trial.

The 2020 race is now in its final stages and 2019 winner Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) currently leads the GC, but Richard Carapaz of Team Ineos Grenadiers and Hugh Carthy of EF Pro Cycling aren’t far behind, so it’s set to be an exciting climax.

If watching the racing isn’t enough for you, indoor cycling app Rouvy has partnered with the Vuelta to allow fans to ride alongside the pros in a virtual grand finale on four stages, taking place on 14, 15, 21 and 22 November. There are prizes up for grabs too.
