Race director Javier Guillén has said that he does not envisage any further changes to the 2020 Vuelta a España following Saturday’s announcement that the two stages in Portugal have been removed from the route due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Guillén said that he has already found alternative finish and start towns in Spain for stages 15 and 16, with an announcement to follow once the precise stage routes have been devised. He told the EFE news agency that he envisaged no other alterations to the 2020 Vuelta.

The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
