La Vuelta a España 2018 

Event date:  25th August to 16th September 2018

La Vuelta a España 2018 bike race starring the world's top riders. The inaugural prologue will consist of an 8-kilometre individual time-trial that will draw the first outline of a Vuelta with a very distinct Andalusian flavour during its first week.

After Malaga, the peloton will travel to Granada, Almería and Jaén, briefly passing through Murcia before finally heading North. Castilla-La Mancha, Castilla y León, Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria – that will host a second individual time-trial spanning over 33 kilometres – the Basque Country, Aragon and Catalonia, will be the subsequent stops before facing the edition's final challenges, with an extremely tough finale in two of the most demanding peaks located in the Principality of Andorra (the Coll de La Rabassa and La Gallina).

The route ends in the city of Madrid, with a departure from Alcorcón and a finish-line at the Plaza de Cibeles, after passing through the Paseo del Prado, whose museum celebrates its second centenary this year.

The nearest stage to Barcelona this year is stage 18 which ends in Lleida, Catalonia. Lleida is one of La Vuelta's “sprinter territories”. In the past decade, two stages have ended in what is known as the capital of inland Catalonia and two first-class names have added Lleida to their list of achievements: Mark Cavendish, winner of 30 Tour de France stages and Danny Van Poppel, son of the legendary Dutch sprinter, Jean Paul Van Poppel.
