Vuelta 2019 Route stage 1: Las Salinas de Torrevieja - Torrevieja

Vuelta 2019 route stage 1Saturday 24 August 2019 - The Vuelta a España opens with a team time trial of 18 kilometres. The start ramp is located in Las Salinas de Torrevieja, a Natural Park with pink-hued water lagoons, while the finish is in nearby Torrevieja.

The Spanish grand tour kicks off with a flat team time trial around the saltmarshes of Torrevieja. So it is back to the familiar routine after 2018’s start with an individual time trial in Málaga.

Two years ago BMC won La Vuelta’s TTT ahead of Quick-Step and Sunweb, while the 2016 edition started in style with Movistar and Sky finishing in exactly the same time. The grand tour eventually was won by Nairo Quintana (Movistar) after a compelling battle with Chris Froome (Sky).

In 2015, the TTT on day one was hors concours (BMC win) and Movistar powered to victory in the 2014 TTT.
