The Vuelta a España starts this weekend and here’s a calendar for your diary.
As ever this format proves very popular but it’s a tricky one for the Vuelta, which stages should you watch out for? There will be daily previews but until then the diary’s stages have a subjective star rating. This year’s race is backloaded with the best stages saved for late and the star rating will help guide your viewing but the early summit finishes are vital because they’ll reveal who’s got the VAM and the vamos and who has legs as responsive as cured jamón after an already long season.
If you’re familiar with ical files, here’s the URL for the ics file.
Save the ics / iCal / iCalendar file and you can import it into your electronic diary. One or two clicks and it’s on your iPhone / Outlook etc. The default settings have alerts turned off but check your device to avoid annoyance. Best of all, copy this URL and use it to subscribe to the calendar and this way any changes and updates will be pushed to your diary.
Alternatively if you use Google then see calendar below and the +Google Calendar link on the bottom-right. Note this method can work with Android phones when the iCal file might not.
Here’s the calendar of stages for you to see:
