Vuelta a Asturias (2.1), Spain

Winners, podium, distance, average speed

The Vuelta a Asturias is a professional road race of long standing, the first edition being held in 1925.

The race has had a spotty promotion history, notably not being run from 1929 to 1946, but there are other gaps as well.

In the 1979 edition, the top three finishers were all found to be positive for dope, causing the classification to be annuled. The 2010 race was marred by winner Constantino Zaballa's dope positive.

In 2014, because of a funding shortage, the Asturias race was again not held.

In 2015 the race was made part of the Europe Tour and elevated to a 2.1 ranking. The race is currently (2015) a two-day affair.

Asturias is on the northwest coast of Spain.
