The Vuelta of 2020 will start in Utrecht. This was announced during a press conference on the beautiful and atmospheric Domplein. Both the Giro d’Italia 2010 and the Grand Départ of the Tour de France in 2015 were partly driven in Utrecht. Great news that Utrecht has now also been able to make the start of the third and final major round within its city limits.
In total, the Spanish Vuelta stays in the Netherlands for three days. On the first day there will be a team time trial in Utrecht. The second stage will start in Den Bosch, after which the peloton will drive to the finish in Utrecht.
The third and final trip across Dutch territory takes place in its entirety in North Brabant, in Breda where both the starting and finishing place is.
Mayor Jan van Zanen of Utrecht says that Utrecht is a real cycling city and that it is therefore so great news that Utrecht is the first city in the world to host all three major rounds.
