Other GC threats lining up include Juan Ayuso (UAE Team Emirates), Lucas Hamilton (BikeExchange-Jayco), Jakob Fuglsang (Israel-Premier Tech), Pello Bilbao (Bahrain Victorious), and Wilco Kelderman (Bora-Hansgrohe).

These riders, and more besides, are expected to do battle on the opening stage, which comes in Torralba del Pinar following a second-category climb, and stage 3, which finishes at the summit of Antenas del Maigmó following a gravel sector.

The remaining three stages of the race, including the finale in Valencia, should come down to sprint finishes, where a quality sprint field look set to do battle.

Elia Viviani (Ineos Grenadiers), Giacomo Nizzolo (Israel-Premier Tech), Fabio Jakobsen (QuickStep-AlphaVinyl), Alexander Kristoff (Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert), Juan Sebastian Molano (UAE Team Emirates), and Matteo Moschetti (Trek-Segafredo) are among the fastmen taking part in the race.
