Vuelta a Espana 2017

When: August 25 to September 16 2018
Where: Spain
UCI category: WorldTour

Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) leads the 2018 Vuelta a España, having reclaimed it with a summit finish win on stage 14.

Yates took the red jersey on stage nine, but lost it on stage 12 to Jesus Herrada (Cofidis).

The 26-year-old led the Giro d’Italia earlier on the season, before cracking on stage 19 – so obviously that’s a situation he’ll want to avoid going into the final week of the Spanish Grand Tour.
