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.
