Team Bahrain McLaren (Spain) - Press Release: 75th edition of the Vuelta will be different in many ways, mostly due to the Covid-19 pandemic that has a huge impact in every industry. Nonetheless, Team Bahrain McLaren is making the best out of it with a strong team to support Wout Poels in General Classification, and Matej Mohorič in stage wins.
The Spanish tour will take off in Irun on Tuesday the 20th of October, and will conclude in Madrid on Sunday, the 8th of November. The legendary Vuelta is, of course, not an exception when it comes to the impacts of the world health crisis – because of the Covid-19 pandemic, for the first time in history, the Vuelta will have only 18 instead of the usual 21 stages and the start will not be in the Netherlands as was planned in the beginning. But, as with everything in sports, we have to take these changes as an opportunity and make the best out of it. So, Team Bahrain McLaren line-up and the strategy were prepared with the same dedication and high goals as with every other race.
Line-up for the Vuelta 2020:
Wout Poels, Grega Bole, Santiago Buitrago Sanchez, Scott Davies, Kevin Inkelaar, Matej Mohorič, Stephen Williams, Alfred Wright.
