It is now forty years since La Vuelta last had a start in Colmenar Viejo (1979). It is a city devoted to sport in everyday life, hosting numerous cycling events for young and amateur cyclists, such as the challenge involving the mountain passes in the Guadarrama range -Desafío de los Puertos de Guadarrama-, organised jointly by Unipublic and the Madrid Cycling Federation. Colmenar will hold the start for the final act of La Vuelta 19, where the main contenders will vie for victory along the roads running through the mountain ranges in central Spain - the Sistema Central.
