Vuelta a España 2017 start list

The group of favourites on stage 17 of the 2016 Vuelta a España Yuzuru Sunada

The final list of riders taking part in the final Grand Tour of the 2017 race season - the Vuelta a España


The 2017 Vuelta a España (August 19 – September 10) start list has been announced, and is filled with some high-profile names coming off the back of the Tour de France.

Chris Froome (Team Sky) is likely to go into the race as the favourite to win the red jersey, having previously fallen short in the Spanish Grand Tour. Froome has finished three times finished second at the Vuelta, and is known to be keen to add the race to his palmarès.

Froome will face a challenge from many of the same riders that he went up against at the Tour, with Romain Bardet (Ag2r La Mondiale), Fabio Aru (Astana) and Alberto Contador (Trek-Segafredo) all taking to take to the start line in Nîmes.

There are also a few GC contenders who come to the Vuelta having ridden the Giro d’Italia rather than the Tour, including Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) and Ilnur Zakarin (Katusha-Alpecin), although Giro winner Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) will not be in attendance.

Aside from Froome there will be British interest in both of the Yates twins, the first time Simon and Adam will have competed in the same Grand Tour since the 2015 Tour de France.
