La Vuelta returns to the beautiful coastline around the city of Alicante, one of the largest cities in eastern Spain. This is a popular pre-season training ground for many teams in the peloton, and the city itself has a long sporting tradition. Alicante has been home to numerous teams and individual athletes that have gone on to achieve success in such varied sports such as cycling, basketball, handball and judo, which is the martial art in which Miriam Blasco, from Alicante by adoption, made her name as Spain’s first woman to win an Olympic gold medal.
