The organisation of La Vuelta, in coordination with health authorities and the government delegations of all territories crossed by the route of the 75th edition of the race, have agreed to apply a series of restrictions to some departures, finish-lines and mountain passes, limiting the amount of public that may attend.
La Vuelta deeply regrets that the current epidemiological situation in Spain does not allow the adequate conditions required for the public to be present at those points. The race will take place without its usual commercial and advertising activities, such as the Parque Vuelta and the advertising caravan, in order to avoid any unnecessary crowds.
The reduced group of organisation personnel, media, sponsors, teams and state security forces that will travel with La Vuelta 20 will be subject to strict sanitary protocols. The organisation will also rigorously enforce a maximum capacity control in all restricted race areas. The team parking area, a space that is usually open to the public in order to allow fans to get closer to the riders will be completely closed-off to the public in order to guarantee the protection of the athletes and of the personnel working with their respective teams.
The following mountain passes will be cut and have restricted access:
- PUERTO DE ARRATE
- LA LAGUNA NEGRA. VINUESA
- COL DU TOURMALET
- PUERTO DE ORDUÑA
- ALTO DE MONCALVILLO
- ALTO DE LA FARRAPONA. LAGOS DE SOMIEDO
- ALTO DE L’ANGLIRU
- MIRADOR DE ÉZARO. DUMBRÍA
- ALTO DE LA COVATILLA
These restrictions, already important today, may be modified in accordance with the evolution of the situation over the coming days. The organisation of La Vuelta will use its different social media channels, as well as its official website, to announce any updates. Meanwhile, it has launched a communications campaign in order to make fans aware of the need to enjoy La Vuelta from home this year.The objective is to avoid any type of crowds surrounding the event, by respecting the criteria established by the national and autonomous health authorities at all times, with whom we maintain constant and uninterrupted communication, just as we have always done.
