Watch the 2018 La Vuelta a España (for FREE) from AnywhereLast Updated by John Bennet on April 25, 2019
For avid cycling fans, the La Vuelta a España needs no introduction. As the last of the three Grand Tour events, the Vuelta is already a test in many ways, but its terrain and soaring temperatures add a whole different level of challenges to the riders, making it arguably the most grueling of the three.
The 2018 La Vuelta a España will run from August 25th to September 16th, and includes everything from team time trials, to flat, mountain, and hilly stages. This years version kicks everything off in Ourense, which is actually a town just northwest of Spain, before making its way back down into the country for the remaining stages.
