Madrid

The vibrant capital of Spain is a known throughout the world for its cultural attractions, culinary delights and its historic plazas that seamlessly mix with its more modern architecture. 

Vuelta a España

The 3 week long grand tour of Spain culminates in an intense finale around one of the most spectacular settings in professional racing. The urban circuit through the centre of Madrid offers a festive atmosphere and is a time to celebrate for the city as well as the riders finishing the gruelling Spanish event.

This final day in the men’s event will see the processional tribute to the rider wearing La Roja (the red jersey) and will consist of a short route from Alcorcon to the capital of Spain. The stage will then have an explosive 30 km of racing which will end with a sprint to the finish line contested by some of the world’s best riders.

The women’s event will again feature before the men’s race and will showcase the sport and the action in this race is one of the highlights of the day.

Since 1935, the Vuelta has been the leading annual multi stage bike race in Spain and is classified as one of the three prestigious grand tours that professional cycling races throughout the calender year, alongside the Giro d'Italia and Tour de France.
