La Vuelta’s 2nd and 3rd stage are also played out on the Costa Blanca. Further details have yet to be confirmed, but an arrival in Calpe and a time trial (possibly on the first day of action) are rumoured. Whether the chrono will be individual or for teams is not known.

The Spanish Grand Tour is likely to include an individual time trial in France, possibly in the last week of action. It is set to be an out-and-back race in Pau. The town in the foothills of the Pyrenees also hosts an individual time trial in the coming Tour de France.

The full route of the 2019 Vuelta a España will be unveiled on December 19.
