The 69th edition of the Vuelta a España starts this weekend, the final of the Grand Tours in the season. It’s the youngest GT of this trio. The Tour and Giro were firstly held in the 1900’s, while the first edition of the Vuelta was in the 1930’s. La Vuelta is also probably the least favorite and well-known of the three races with the general public, partly because it used to be held in the same period as the Giro d’Italia. Both races were held in the spring of the season, during the current period of the Giro in May.
