iryo, the first private Spanish high-speed operator partnered with Trenitalia, Air Nostrum and Globalvia, that launched on the 25th of November 2022, renews its sponsorship agreement with La Vuelta for the second consecutive year, thus becoming the sporting event’s official mode of transport as it travels throughout our country.  

Following a very successful first edition, iryo continues to reinforce its commitment to sports in general, and to this competition in particular, displaying such shared values as hard work, perseverance and sustainability. For this reason, the operator will make its innovative fleet available to the race, offering a fast, comfortable and flexible travel service to all those travelling for the event

La Vuelta 24 will begin on the 17th of August in Lisbon and conclude on the 8th of September in Madrid, having completed 21 stages and 3,200 km. iryo will have visibility at every stage finale and will feature ondifferent supports along the race, as well as television, media and social media.  

Simone Gorini, iryo’s General Manager and CEO, and Javier Guillén, General Director of La Vuelta, signed the agreement this morning on board a special train that had been vinyl-wrapped for the occasion and that will be travelling throughout the country over the next three months.  

Simone Gorini, iryo’s General Manager and CEO, said: ‘Once again, we are very proud to support Spain’s most important cycling competition, and one of the most internationally consolidated cycling races – one that promotes a passion for sports and self-improvement. The renewal of our alliance also allows us to promote trains as a means of sustainable mobility by taking cycling fans to such destinations as Seville, Cordoba or Madrid.’  

Javier Guillén, General Director of Unipublic, declared that ‘sustainable transport through iryo is a key alliance for La Vuelta.’ ‘For us, it’s an honour to renew this agreement, with a company that is both responsible and modern and that will also carry the La Vuelta brand throughout the country thanks to this vinyl-wrapped train,’ he added.  


iryo is the first private high speed railway operator in Spain in terms of number of frequencies and fleet volume and features the participation of its partners Trenitalia, Air Nostrum and Globalvia. The company launched its operations in 2022 with the only new train fleet on the market: in its first phase, it invested 800 million euros into 20 state-of-the-art units built by Hitachi Rail-Alstom Group. The company then won the B Package – the second with the highest number of frequencies, after the one granted to Renfe – in the bid launched by ADIF in November 2019 to liberalise railway transportation in Spain. iryo is headed by its President, Carlos Bertomeu, and Simone Gorini, its CEO.
