The Vuelta a Burgos is the first UCI ProSeries race on the rescheduled European road race calendar in late July, with the five-day stage race attracting 12 major WorldTour teams as the riders test their form and the medical protocols for the return to racing after the COVID-19 coronavirus lockdown.

According to local media reports, the Burgos Provincial Council that organises the race was inundated with requests from 40 teams, eventually giving the 22 spots to 12 WorldTour teams, the Spanish ProTeams Caja Rural, Euskaltel-Euskadi and Burgos-BH, and several Continental teams.
