Vuelta a Espana 2020: A very different race - Preview

  Vuelta a Espana 2020: A very different race - Preview The Spanish Grand Tour sets off amid rising coronavirus cases across EuropeSince the Slovenian national road race in mid-June, the first event to be held in post-lockdown Europe, the current pandemic and measures against it have inevitably formed part of the furniture of every bike race. But the fast-rising second wave of infections of COVID-19 across Europe, coupled with recent events in the Giro d’Italia, will further heighten the focus on this question in the last Grand Tour to be held in the rescheduled 2020 season.

The 2020 Vuelta a España is the 75th edition of the Vuelta a España , one of cycling's three grand tours. The race was originally scheduled to be held from 14 August to 6 September 2020 .

Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) won stage 8 of the Vuelta a España, with its summit finish at the Alto de Moncalvillo, on Wednesday, distancing his rivals to move back up to second overall, leap-frogging Hugh Carthy (EF Pro Cycling) and Dan Martin (Israel Start-Up Nation) – who had started the day in second and third place, respectively – to now sit just 13 seconds behind race leader Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers).

Things remain close at the top of the general classification, however, with Martin now in third, a further 15 seconds down, while Carthy has dropped to fourth, but is still only 44 seconds behind leader Carapaz.

It of course meant that Roglič increased his lead in the points classification ahead of Carapaz, and will keep the green jersey, while another Martin – Cofidis leader Guillaume Martin – kept his lead in the mountains classification, albeit by only a small margin ahead of Roglič's Jumbo-Visma teammate Sepp Kuss and Carapaz, and so will wear the blue-and-white polka-dot jersey into Thursday's flat ninth stage from Castrillo del Val to Aguilar de Campoo, which should go the way of the sprinters.

Enric Mas remains fifth on the general classification, 1:54 down on Carapaz, and so retains his white best young rider jersey, while Mas's Movistar team also leads the teams classification.

This year's shortened, rescheduled Vuelta got under way in Irun, in the Basque Country, on October 20, and is being run over 18 stages to Madrid, finishing in Spain's capital city on November 8.
