Unipublic, the organizing company of the most important cycling event that takes place in Spain, has announced this Friday the list of teams participating in this year’s edition of La Vuelta. Among the invited teams is once again Caja Rural-Seguros RGA, which will start its ninth consecutive participation in the spanish Grand Tour.
As always, the team will try to restore this confidence on the road, showing its best image on a first-level race and seeking to repeat the good level of last year, with three second places that only lacked a stage win. La Vuelta 2020 will start on October 20th with an attractive stage between Irún and Arrate and will end, as most editions do, in Madrid on November 8th. Meanwhile, six flat stages, six mid-mountain, five mountain and an individual time trial, with special stages for Caja Rural-Seguros RGA such as the departure from Pamplona or the days of the first week.
Juan Manuel Hernández (manager): “It will be the ninth consecutive participation of Caja Rural-Seguros RGA in La Vuelta, a wildcard of great value to the entire team and for which we are very grateful to Unipublic. It is the most unusual La Vuelta in many years, in which we will all have to adjust and take priority for health, so we will support the organization in whatever it takes to prevent Covid-19. “
“Last year we were very close to a stage victory with three second places. This 2020 we had started the season in good shape, with a great win for Gonzalo Serrano in Vuelta a Andalucía, but we all had to adjust to this new situation. Our cyclists continue working with the focus on the return to the competition, and especially on October 20th in Irún. The objective is clear: to achieve a stage victory. The level will undoubtedly be very high, we will work hard and I know we have the level to get it. Of course, one more year we will give new opportunities to our young riders so that they can measure up to the best in the world”.
“Being in La Vuelta 2020 is the best news we could receive, it will be synonymous with the fact that we will all be better and face the future with maximum enthusiasm”.
