From August 25 to September 16, cycling returns with the Vuelta of Spain, here are the schedules and how to do to follow the Vuelta of Spain 2018 in streaming
The third major tour of the cycling season is just around the corner: In fact, on August 25, the Vuelta a España starts. To fight for the red leader's jersey, which characterizes the first of the ranking in the Spanish stage race, there will also be our Fabio Aru and Vincenzo Nibali.
The two Italian riders arrive at the Vuelta with the same spirit: both are looking for redemption. The approach to the Spanish race, which will close on September 16 with the Madrid catwalk, however, has been very different for the two Italian cyclists who have already won the Vuelta in the past. Aru after the flop with the withdrawal at the Giro d'Italia has reviewed the preparation and is in Spain to make the rankings and why not to win the Vuelta. While Nibali is in Spain to "find his leg", as they say in jargon, after the unfortunate accident that forced him to retire during the last Tour de France. Vincenzo himself has declared to be at the Vuelta to try to win at least one stage and to prepare at best the World Championship on September 30th. So here are the schedules and how to follow the Vuelta 2018 in streaming.
