( SJL, ESC )


Andorra hosts the 2018 Vuelta with the finish of the 19th stage and the whole 20th stage in the Principality on Friday 14 and Saturday 15 September.


The Vuelta a España is an old acquaintance of Andorra, which has been the setting for some thrilling stages. With the epic stage held in our country in September 2015 still fresh in fans' memories, this year we can once again experience the greatness of this sport.

On Friday 14 September, Naturlandia (height of 2,000 m) will host the finish of the 19th stage (Lleida-Andorra, 154.4 km). And on Saturday 15, the Principality of Andorra will be the setting for the 20th stage, which will be disputed entirely on our roads.

This is the last stage of the 73rd Vuelta, which starts at Escaldes-Engordany, covering 97.3 km and almost 4,000 m of accumulated ascent. Riders will have to overcome the passes of Coll de la Comella (twice), Coll de Beixalis (also twice), Coll d'Ordina and Coll de la Gallina to reach the Canolich Sanctuary, the site of the finishing line.

With cyclists who'll already have three weeks in the saddle covering 3,000 km, the Andorran stage will leave its mark on this year's Vuelta. A day that no fan will want to miss.

The race, one of the big three along with the Giro and the Tour, starts in Malaga on 25 August and ends in Madrid on 16 September. The 2018 Vuelta has 21 stages and covers 3,270 km. There will be a 40.7km individual time trial and 46 mountains passes, with two rest days.

You'll find all the information on the La Vuelta 2018 website.
