Vuelta a España 2020

Latest News from the Race

The 2020 Vuelta a España sees the race start on foreign soil for the fourth time as Utrecht becomes the first city to host stages of all three Grand Tours. It will also be the Vuelta’s second start in the Netherlands after Assen hosted the Salidia Oficial in 2009.

The action gets underway with a 23.7km team time trial in Utrecht on the evening of Friday, August 14 and the opening weekend will see two road stages on Dutch roads before the caravan decamps to Spain for the remainder of the race. Madrid will be the site of the final stage on September 6.

Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) was an emphatic winner of the 2019 Vuelta. The Slovenian seized the red jersey with a dominant display in the Pau time trial, before defending his advantage in the mountains and in the echelons of the final week. Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) placed second, while Roglic’s fellow Slovenian Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates) rounded out the podium after winning a hat-trick of mountain stages in his maiden Grand Tour.
