TRIVIA: The 2020 race will feature 22 teams, of which 15 WT teams for the first time (to my knowledge). // The previous two years, it was Sosa who claimed the victory (and rightfully so, since he was the fastest overall). Considering this is the first post-Covid-19-lockdown stagerace of note, the race is attracting a lot more high profile riders compared to previous years, so Sosa will probably have to dig a bit deeper to take the trophee home again. // Only since a few days has the official website been updated with the new 2020 schedule. However, at the moment of writing, only 1 stage has been added, including stage profile. Others surely to be added later. // Considering previous years generally featured similar routes, it is safe to expect the major climbs in the 2020 parcours to be: Alto de Altotero, Picón Blanco, Lagunas de Neila and many, many more (but shorter). // The race will be featured on 15 television networks. // I'll add the new stage profiles as they become available.
