2023 Vuelta España Stage 1 Preview

Barcelona > Barcelona 14.9km TTT

The race kicks off in beautiful Barcelona with a 14.9km TTT. 

This is no normal TTT, I count 18 corners which must be navigated. The good news is that the streets of Barca are very wide, but it will slightly disrupt the flow of the chain gang.  


There’s a risk of rain, not what the doctor ordered. The race doesn’t start until 1900 local time, at that point there’s a 60% chance of showers. Hopefully the forecast isn’t right.
