Pereiro: "Participation in this Vuelta will be one of the historical ones"

The Galician, Ecovidrio's ambassador, highlighted the "historical participation" that there will be. Guillén, director of the test, said that Pogacar's presence is "at 50%."


The days continue to pass and there is less time for the Vuelta a España, which will start on August 14 in Burgos and will conclude on September 5 in Santiago de Compostela. The passage of the Olympic Games will finish deciding the starting list of the race, but the line-up, in the absence of final confirmations, has many stars. Óscar Pereiro, Ecovidrio's ambassador and ex-cyclist, analyzed the protagonists for AS. "Participation in this Vuelta will be one of the historical ones, and more if the doubts that are pending are confirmed. Pogacar and Carapaz, who seem to be, Roglic, Bernal, Landa, the Yates brothers, Lutsenko, the Movistar trio (Valverde, But, Superman ...) is tremendous ". One of the key stages will be the penultimate day, in Galicia. "A trap", in which he participated in the design.

For this 2021, the dates are again August and September, after the atypical Vuelta 2020 in autumn due to the remodeling of the calendar due to the pandemic. "This time the weather will affect less, and that which he respected last year. The good weather will help the battle, because there are riders that do not work in the cold," said the winner of the Tour in 2006. "We had spectacular landscapes and photos in the last edition, but we already leave that for the memory. There are some who say that in May, when it was done in the past, they were good dates, but I think those of now are the ideal ones ".

Regarding the Spanish options in the long-distance test of the Tokyo Games, Pereiro also gives his point of view: "I think Spain starts with options although without being the top favorite. It will be a very tough race with heat, humidity, unevenness ... If Valverde arrives with good legs at the decisive moment, he will have a lot to say, but a priori he is not the great favorite, as he was in the 2018 World Cup that he won. Now it is Van Aert, who arrives launched, and also Pogacar ", think. "I think that the good cut will not be close to good, as is usually the case with 20 km from the finish or on style. I think that 100 km from finishing, after Mount Fuji, the winning group can come out."The options for Pogacar to go to the Vuelta, at 50%

Javier Guillén, director of the Vuelta, once again highlighted the possibility that Pogacar, flaming champion of the Tour de France, will attend the Spanish round. "His team (UAE Emirates) wants him to come, but the last word is his. Right now there is a 50% chance that he will come," added Guillén. "Now the Olympic Games are coming. After the break, assess and make a decision. We believe that if he comes it will be to compete to the fullest."
