Records in the Volta a Catalunya
Spain took by far the most GC-wins at the Catalan stage-race and therefore it is not surprising a Spaniard holds the record of most victories. In the period 1928-1939 Mariano Cañardo was the ruthless ruler with seven wins. After him Miguel Indurain and Alejandro Valverde come closest with three victories each.

If we are talking stage-wins Miguel Poblet is in a class of his own. From 1947 to 1960 he pocketed 33 stages.
