Pro Cycling Manager 2012 - La Vuelta a España 2012 Stage 12
The Vuelta a España (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈbwelta a esˈpaɲa]; English: Tour of Spain) is an annual multiple stage bicycle race (aka a cycling tour) primarily held in Spain, while also occasionally making passes through nearby countries. Inspired by the success of the Giro d'Italia and the Tour de France, the race was first organized in 1935. It's currently organized by Unipublic. The race has been prevented from being run by the World Wars and the Spanish Civil War in the early years of its existence; however, the race has been held annually since 1955. As the Vuelta gained prestige and popularity the race was lengthened and its reach began to extend all around the globe. The peloton expanded from a primarily Spanish participation, riders from all over the world participate in the race each year. The Vuelta is a UCI World Tour event, which means that the teams that compete in the race are mostly UCI ProTeams, with the exception of the teams that the organizers can invite.
Along with the Tour de France and Giro d'Italia, the Tour makes up cycling's prestigious, three week-long Grand Tours. While the route changes each year, the format of the race stays the same with the appearance of at least two time trials, the passage through the mountain chain of the Pyrenees, and the finish in the Spanish capital Madrid. The modern editions of the Vuelta a España consist of 21 day-long segments, stages, over a 23 day period. All the stages are timed to the finish, after finishing the riders' times are compounded with their previous stage times. The rider with the lowest aggregate time is the leader of the race and gets to don the red jersey. While the general classification garners the most attention there are other contests held within the Vuelta: the points classification for the sprinters, the mountains classification for the climbers (who sometimes are racing with general classification hopes), combination classification for the all-round riders, and the team classification for the competing teams. The 2011 Vuelta a España was won by the Spaniard Juan José Cobo of Geox-TMC.
