Where to Watch Vuelta Live 2018 – TV, Online, and Mobile

In the world of cycling, the term Grand Tour refers to three major cycling events – Tour de France, Giro d’Italia, and Vuelta a Espana. Out of these races, Vuelta a Espana (or Tour of Spain) is regarded as one of the most gruelling and difficult on the riders. High levels of heat combined with the season entering into the last stretch means that even the best riders find it difficult to negotiate the steep climbs, which are numerous number, over the course of the 21 days. Unlike in 2015, Vuelta 2018 brings back the mountainous stages towards the latter part of the event.

Race Details

Vuelta a Espana 2018 kicks off on August 20 and runs until September 11. As it is the tradition, the event kicks off with a team time trial at the Balneario Laias – Parque Náutico Castrelo de Miño course. There are 10 summits in the race, but interestingly, they do not begin until the third week of the event. Out of the 21 stages, the 13th stage that takes place in the Basque Country has been described as the toughest looking of them all. The race encompasses only one individual time trial and it occurs in the 19th stage.
