Vuelta a España iCal

The Vuelta a España starts this Saturday and here’s a calendar for your diary.

As ever this format proves popular but it’s a tricky one for the Vuelta, which stages should you watch out for? The diary’s stages have a subjective star rating for their importance to the race and likely action.

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:

If you want more help on how to make use of this, see the page which has the calendar for all the main men’s and women’s pro races in 2019 and a fuller explanation of how to put a calendar into Outloook, an iPhone, your diary etc.

  1. Shame to hear Carapaz crashed at the weekend and there’s doubts about his participation.
    He was great to watch in the Giro. Hope he can bounce back but it’s a lot to ask for him to be competitive if he hit the ground hard.

    • Hmmm, I wasn’t enamoured with Carapaz’s win. Certainly a great filip for him, and he won by being the fastest – I’m not denying that. But he got a bit lucky because Nibali was watching Roglic and Roglic was in any position to defend the attacks. Nibali lost his game of poker when he let Carapaz cycle off without chasing him, in the hope that Roglic wasted energy chaseing him down.

      Now, it’s a great filip for Carapaz, but I think he got lucky by force and circumstance. You could say the same about Geraint Thomas in the TdF last year. Froome wasn’t at his best, and was hoping to ride into the tour. If Froome had not lost the initiative with his early crash the third week would have been a different matter. Thomas would have been put to his service and would likely not have won.
      Same if Landa or Amador had had a better GC position than Carapaz. But when they (Nibali and Roglic) let him ride off they gave him the throne.

      Carapaz went under the radar and won, but he wasn’t exciting to watch.
