The Tour of Discoveries

A first analysis of the stages presents us with a more balanced route than on previous occasions. On the one hand, his drawing. On the other, its variety.

The Tour of the Cathedrals. That could be a good title for the 76th edition of the Vuelta a España, which will start from Burgos and will culminate in Santiago de Compostela with time trials. In total, 42 kilometers against the clock, which cannot be said to be many, although they are in the line of modern cycling. Between that August 14 and September 5, between cathedral and cathedral, there will be many other attractions. In fact, a first analysis of the stages presents us with a more balanced route than on previous occasions. On the one hand, because of its drawing, which covers more territory and is closer to 'a return' to the peninsula, nothing to do with the northern limitation of last year. As a lack, it is striking that it does not step on the Pyrenees or the northeast, but, in contrast, it returns strongly to Extremadura, a traditionally forgotten community. It's not easy to go everywhere.

And on the other hand, due to the diversity of the stages. Between large ports and ramps there will be nine high-rise arrivals, several of them unprecedented, such as Picón Blanco, ViIluercas and the much-sought Gamoniteiro, and other more classic ones, such as the historic Lakes of Covadonga, as well as the vibrant and lively Valdepeñas de Jaén slope. . A hallmark of the Vuelta that is not only maintained this year, but is also promoted. The Tour of the Cathedrals is still the Tour of Discoveries. The route also offers medium mountain scenery (Córdoba, El Barraco, Mos…) and possible fans (Albacete, Mar Menor…). And it presents more opportunities for sprinters, six or seven, which some interpret as good news, although I particularly do not see as much fun that almost a third of the goals are aimed at sprinters. They are normally soporific days, which only the wind tends to animate. There is no perfect Vuelta, nor to everyone's taste. But thus, from the outset, that of 2021 looks good. Waiting for that perfection to be given by cyclists.
