Santiago de Compostela

In the last 30 years, whenever La Vuelta has left Madrid in order to finish the edition in a city other than the capital, the chosen one has always been Santiago de Compostela. The La Coruña municipality will again be a decisive one in La Vuelta 21, coinciding with the celebration of the Jacobean Year. A key ephemeris to understand this edition of the Spanish grand tour that departs from the Burgos Cathedral and crosses the finish-line where the pilgrimage comes to an end: at Santiago de Compostela.

Padrón has already hosted a La Vuelta stage departure. In fact, the La Coruña municipality knows what it is like to be a decisive stage in the Spanish grand tour. This route, departing from Padrón and finishing at Santiago de Compostela, was already completed in the final stage of La Vuelta 1993. Alex Zülle won that time trial, though his victory was only partial and did not allow him to beat his compatriot, Tony Rominger, in the overall classification. Zülle learned a tough lesson that day: that, sometimes, in Padrón, some win e outros non (“and others don’t”).
