The 2010 Vuelta a Espana, which will be celebrating its 75th anniversary, begins in Sevilla, Spain, on August 28, and ends 22 days later in Madrid. This year's race will kick-off for the first time with a night-time 13-kilometer team time trial through Seville's most iconic neighborhoods, while crowds of spectators gather to once again follow this exciting and vibrant three-week Spanish race. As usual, the course favors aggressive riders who perform well in the mountains. There are five mountain-top finishes, including two new climbs, Cotobello and La Bola del Mundo, and an extension to Navacerrada, which comes the day before the finish and will likely be a deciding factor in the quest for the top spot in the Vuelta a Espana 2010.
