Sports Tours International Brings Visitors to Excitement of 2018 Vuelta a España Sans Froome and Team Sky

MANCHESTER, UK, Aug. 24, 2018– The wrap-up tour on this season’s world stage of cycling is the 2018 Vuelta a España Aug. 25-Sept. 15, 2018.

“The 73rd edition of this race is perhaps going to be the most exciting Grand Tour of the year as Team Sky is unlikely to dominate proceedings without Froome or Thomas competing. The field should be completely open. However, all us Brits will be rooting for the Yates Twins,” said Ross Litherland of Sports Tours International. “Just imagine all three Grand Tours of 2019, won by three different British Riders”.
