The organisation of la Vuelta a España has announced the dates for the 2022 edition of the race and has confirmed the departure from the Netherlands.

The 2020 edition of the Spanish grand tour was set to have its start in the Netherlands, but the Covid-19 pandemic put those plans on hold. Now the organisation of the race has confirmed that the 2022 edition will kick off with a team time trial through the streets of Utrecht -which will celebrate 900 years since it was officially recognised as a city- on August 19.

On the 20th of August, the stage will begin in s-Hertongensbosch and will finish in Utrecht, while the next day, the pack will continue riding through the North Brabant region in a circuit stage with a start and finish in Breda. The 2022 Vuelta a España will go through 34 Dutch municipalities.

"We have finally an official date," said Sharon Dijksma, Mayor of Utrecht. "We were looking forward to getting back on track with La Vuelta Holanda’s project, and now we can’t wait to get back to work. We’re putting together a wonderful program for residents and businesses, as well as for all our international guests. Our aim is to further reinforce the special link that already exists between Spain and the Netherlands."

"We’re establishing new dates for a project with almost 6 years of work behind it," added Javier Guillén, General Manager of La Vuelta. "These extra months of waiting haven’t reduced one bit our eagerness to work together, nor the enthusiasm and ambition we have put into organising this official departure from the very first day. This departure will go down in history, marking an important milestone for both Spanish and Dutch cycling."
