2021 Tour of Spain route
It will start on August 14 from Burgos Cathedral with an 8 km time trial and always ends with a time trial on September 5 in Santiago de Compostela, which will probably decide the race as it is 33.7 kilometres long.
Although there is an uphill finish at Picon Blanco at the third stage (nine kilometres in the first category), the first week is a little smoother than last year. We find the first mountain stage on the seventh day with arrival at the balcony of Alicante. The last week the riders will leave Cantabria with a flat stage, but the next day will arrive at the lakes of Covadonga. Then, La Vuelta will climb Gamoniteru for the first time, a 15 km climb with an average gradient of 10% during which the racers will be keenly assessed — even if everything will be decided during the final time trial. Sports betting on the winner of the Tour of Spain will be undecided until the end of the race.
Recommended bets on La Vuelta
The leader of the tour wears a red jersey. For several seasons, the winners of the Vuelta have been international.
In 2019 and 2020, Slovenian Primož Roglic won. His power-to-weight ratio gives him a serious advantage over his competitors. Betting on a Roglic hat-trick can pay off, especially as Tadej Pogacar, the two-time Tour winner and Olympic medalist, will not be competing this season.
Although the Slovenian might not be an all-around champion, he has shown that he is currently the strongest competitor in the big tours in Spain. Aged 31, he is the first man in cycling history to win the red jersey and the green leader's jersey in the points classification twice in a row. The best climber's blue polka-dot jersey ended up on Guillaume Martin's shoulders, Enric Mas's white jersey (junior ranking).
The previous edition in 2020 was a year of surprises. Primoz Roglic, a former ski jumper, won the 2020 Vuelta a España, successfully defended his title and made back-to-back victories in the Spanish Grand Tour.
