Stars like Mark Cavendish (Bahrain-McLaren), Remco Evenepoel (Deceuninck – Quick-Step), and Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) are all on their bikes this week as they look to prepare for this weekend’s Strade Bianche – the first official WorldTour race since the global sporting shutdown earlier in the year.

Comprised of five stages and totalling 796km, the Vuelta a Burgos winds it way through Spain’s Basque Country heartland and features two climbing days, two sprinting days – and one very dramatic summit finish at Las Lagunas de Neila on Saturday. Typically a warm-up to the more prestigious Vuelta a Espana, the 2020 Vuelta a Burgos is unlike any other iteration of the race, boasting not only a world-class field but also a raft of unprecedented health and safety measures due to the coronavirus pandemic.
