Until 2020 the amount of points at the intermediate sprints and finishes did not vary with the kind of terrain of a particular stage. But since last year the regulations have been changed and the points distribution is similar to the Tour de France.

The distribution of points at La Vuelta is as follows:

Maximum amounts of points: 50 – 30 – 20 – 18 – 16 – 14 – 12 – 10 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 5 – 4 – 3 – 2

Medium amount of points: 30 – 25 – 22 – 19 – 17 – 15 – 13 – 11 – 9 – 7 – 6 – 5 – 4 – 3 – 2
