2019 La Vuelta may open with a Classic Team Time Trial on the Costa Blanca

Three opening stages to be hosted around the Costa Blanca region

La Vuelta race director Javier Guillen told the press “In Alicante, we would like to offer many different kinds of race. The first stage is going to be a time trial. We have to decide if it’s team time trial or individual time trial."

The 74th edition of the Vuelta a España starts on Saturday, the 24th of August 2019, from the Costa Blanca. The Gran Salida (Great Depart) is in La Salinas de Torrevieja, a Nature Park in the province of Alicante in the beautiful Costa Blanca.

Three opening stages to be hosted around the Costa Blanca, inland as well the coastal areas, "Alicante is one of the better places we have here in Spain to practise cycling because there is a perfect combination between sea and mountains" he said.

“The second day is a Sunday and we would like to combine the sea and the mountains. In Alicante we have very good mountains in terms of quality for cycling and we would like to take advantage of that" he continued

“The third day is maybe the day the stage could finish in a sprint. But also we’ll go to the inner of the province, so the difficulty of the mountains, not big mountains but different mountains we’re proposing along the route gives the possibility to say for sure it’s going to be a sprint stage.”

The 2019 Vuelta is set to finish on Sunday, the 15th of September, most likely in Madrid.

The Spanish Grand Tour is runoured to include an individual time trial in France, possibly in the last week of the 3 week race, in Pau, the famous cycling town in the foothills of the Pyrenees. It also hosts an individual time trial in the 2019 Tour de France.
