Dutch Delights as 2022 La Vuelta Route Unveiled

INTERNATIONAL: The route for next year's Vuelta de Espana was officially presented on Thursday with the race set to start in the Dutch city of Utrecht on August 19. It will be only the fourth time the Vuelta has kicked off outside Spain in 77 editions. The 21-stage race will include nine high-altitude finishes, five of which have never been used before, seven mountain stages, six flat stages and two-time trials. Slovenian Primoz Roglic has won the last three editions.

Utrecht, which has also hosted the Grand Depart of the Tour de France, was supposed to be the start of the 2020 Vuelta but the COVID-19 pandemic meant the route was changed and shortened. The city will host the opening time trial. The 2022 Vuelta will for the first time visit all eight provinces of Andalusia, with the peloton crossing east to west from Almeria to Huelva.
