Deceuninck – Quick-Step Floors Cycling Team (Spain) - Press Release: The 76th edition of the race takes place between 14 August-5 September.
From Burgos to Santiago de Compostela over 3400 kilometers, bookended by individual time trials, comprising more than 40 classified climbs – including the Alto de Velefique, Pico Villuercas, Lagos de Covadonga and Alto D’El Gamoniteiru – but also several opportunities for the sprinters, this year’s Vuelta a España promises to deliver again plenty of excitement and unforgettable moments.
“La Vuelta is La Vuelta, one of the hardest races of the season, but we are confident, as we have a strong team capable of fighting for a good result on almost all stages. Fabio is back in a Grand Tour after two years and comes at the start following a very good Tour de Wallonie and supported by a solid sprint train, consisting of Josef, Florian and Bert, all riders who have shown their quality in the past. Zdenek and Josef are both capable of seizing the opportunity if it will present itself, while James, Mauri and Andrea can try and do something in the mountains stages, where they have what it takes to go for a nice result”, explained Deceuninck – Quick-Step sports director Wilfried Peeters.
