LA VUELTA REINVENTS TRADITION
La Vuelta in 2020 is not going to look like any previous edition of the word’s most beautiful Grand Tour, but still promises to be the most exciting spectacle in cycling this season. The 2020 Vuelta inspired us to create cycling kits that celebrate both the toughness of the race and the beauty and history of Spain. We started by selecting the best-in-class fabrics to build body-hugging, technical, race-ready garments. We then put the canvas of those kits in the hands of our design team, led by cycling’s most thoughtful designer and storyteller, Fergus Niland. The result is another beautiful collection of leader’s jerseys and inspirational commemorative kits that reflect the race we all love so much, and the people and places that serve as its backdrop.

KILÓMETRO CERO 2020
The finish of La Vuelta into Madrid has become a tradition and a day of joyous celebration. We love the festive atmosphere of the last day of race and we have created the now famous Kilometro Cero line to honor the monument in the Puerta del Sol square in central Madrid. The red and yellow colours represent the hues of a sunset over the Spanish capital. The word-mark Km Cero is inspired by the fact that the origin of all the roads of Spain begins at the square.
This jersey is dedicated to the stage that will start from the famous NAVARRA town of Pamplona, home of the St. Fermin fiesta (The Running of The Bulls). To honor the participant of the fiesta, we designed a simple logo that incorporates the head of a bull with a sprocket from a cogset as a nose ring. A red triangle represents the scarf worn by the men and women who take part to the “Encierro” through the narrow streets of Pamplona, escaping from bulls till the “Plaza de Toros”. The word Pamplona is drawn with the shape of the traditional red sash worn by the participants of the San Fermin bull-run.
Stage 6 hosts the first-ever Vuelta summit finish on one of the most iconic climbs in world cycling, the Col du Tourmalet. The jersey features a yellow base colour as a nod to the mountain’s history in the Tour de France. On the chest, we added a mountain motif formed from the letters of the word Col du Tourmalet. And since the Col du Tourmalet finish is the highest in the Vuelta at 2115 meters, we created a distinctive logo for the rear pockets highlighting this fact.
ALTO DE L'ANGLIRU
Stage 12 of the Vuelta is packed full of climbs, the final of which takes the peloton up the fearsome climb of Alto de L’Angliru. This stage jersey is dedicated to the reputation of this renowned ascent, with flames and pitchforks on a hellish red background.
