The Vuelta a España already started last Saturday at the Costa Blanca.
Time for us to look back on the first edition in 1935.
There were 14 stages, and 300 pesetas to be won at each stage for the first hero to cross the finish line.
300 pesetas? Well, that is € 1.80 … just enough for one Cortado..
50 riders started the adventure of which 29 reached the finish. This year 176 riders are participating, but how many will arrive in Madrid…?
