Alongside Sibiu Tour (23-26 July), Vuelta a Burgos will be the first race that WorldTour teams would be able to start in the UCI’s post COVID-19 calendar.
The Spanish race is poised to have a stellar start list this year, with Team Ineos and Jumbo-Visma head of the list. Other teams expected to start include Movistar, Mitchelton-Scott, Trek-Segafredo, Bora-Hansgrohe, UAE-Team Emirates, Bahrain-McLaren, NTT and Cofidis.
“We have 40 teams that want to come to the Vuelta a Burgos,” said regional sports minister Ángel Carretón. “We are convinced that all the top world-class riders could be in Burgos.”
2020 Vuelta a Burgos should run July 28 to August 1. Former winners include Mikel Landa, Nairo Quintana, and Alberto Contador. Ivan Sosa (Team Ineos) has won the past two editions.
“It’s great to see Vuelta Burgos will be going ahead,” said Mitchelton-Scott sport director Matt White. “We will now wait for UCI/team and Spanish health protocols to be finalized before we lock in more concrete plans. After a four-month break from racing, everybody involved can’t wait to get season 2020 V2 back on the road.”
