La Vuelta

The Vuelta a España was a three-week Grand Tour cycling stage race that took place in Spain between 19 August and 10 September 2017. The race was the 72nd edition of the Vuelta a España and the final Grand Tour of the 2017 cycling season.

Chris Froome made history in Madrid when he became the first rider to win the Vuelta a España and Tour de France in the same year since Bernard Hinault in 1978.

He also became the first Briton to win the event, the first Briton to win a major Tour other than the Tour de France, and the first cyclist to take the double since the Vuelta was moved to late season in 1995.
