Vuelta a Espana 2019

The final podium: Enric Mas, Simon Yates and Miguel Angel Lopez

The 2019 Vuelta a Espana was unveiled in a ceremony in Alicante on December 19. While the summit finishes had been cut back a touch from nine to eight, the organisers announced a mountainous route that stuck with the Vuelta’s traditions.

Some brutally steep climbs have been sought out for the occasion with four-kilometre Mas de la Costa and the painfully steep Los Muchacos return to the route. Andorra is also back on the menu and will host a short but punchy stage to bring week one to a close. The 100-kilometre route comprises five climbs and will ensure some gaps in the overall classification.

All well as the plentiful altitude metres, an off-road section in Andorra on the second weekend of the race was another of the talking points in the three-week race. There will be just over 60 kilometres of time trialling too, with a 24km team effort in Torrevieja opening the race and a 36.1km individual chrono in Pau at the start of the second week.

The final week of action gives the sprinters more opportunities to find glory before the last stage into Madrid. For the overall contenders, there are fewer chances but the penultimate day will see one last summit finish to decide the red jersey.

The 2019 Vuelta a Espana will run from Saturday, August 24 to Sunday, September 15.
