We know that your head is probably full of tactics for Vuelta betting 2019, but let’s take a trip back in time to examine the origins of this exciting competition. And who knows, learning more about its history might even put you in a better mindset for learning how things might turn out this year…
The first Vuelta a Espana was held back in 1935. However, it got off to a rocky start with turmoil both national and international when the Spanish Civil War and World War II broke out. That means it didn’t start becoming a reliably annual event until 1955.
It started as a purely Spanish affair, but over the years it has gained international acclaim and well known riders from all over the world participate. And bettors from every corner of the globe also have a flutter on it too.
The route is switched up every year, but you can always count on at least two time trials, a trek up the Pyrenees and it finishing up in Madrid. These days there are always 21 stages of the race over 23 days. That means just two rest days for the hard-working cyclists.
