Who wins Vuelta a San Juan 2020?
Vuelta a San Juan 2020
The Vuelta a San Juan 2020 is the 38th edition of the race, a men’s elite stage race held in Argentina. The race consists of seven stages and, as of 2017, is a 2.1 category race for UCI World Tour teams. The first stage begins on the 26th of January and ends on the 2nd of February, with one rest day in the middle.
The current champion is Winner Anacona (Team Arkéa Samsic), who held off the challenge of Julian Alaphilippe (Team Deceuninck - Quick Step) and Oscar Sevilla (Team Medellin) to take the title. Sevilla is a previous winner, having taken the 2018 title, while Bauke Mollema (Team Trek - Segafredo) won in 2017.
The 2020 race
The seven-stage 2020 race beckons to be a great early season competition with some big names attempting to take the title from Winner Anacona. Oscar Sevilla is back again to attempt to regain his crown, as is Julian Alaphilippe who is considered a big favourite. Alaphilippe had a superb 2019 and will be looking to start 2020 strongly.
The former World Champion Peter Sagan (Team BORA - Hansgrohe) has also announced the Vuelta a San Juan will be his first race of the 2020 season. Sagan will be returning to the race having previously come close to two stage wins, at Punta Negra and Villa San Agustin, but falling just short. He’ll be hoping for both stage wins and a possible podium finish.
Additionally joining the peloton is Fernando Fernando Gaviria (UAE Team Emirates), Rafal Majka (Team BORA - Hansgrohe) and Filippo Ganna (the Italian national team). All three are strong contenders. Gaviria has the most stage wins at the Vuelta a San Juan to his name, with an impressive 5, while Alaphilippe has 2.
A number of other riders will also be looking to impress in the early season and make the podium. Ninth placed last year, the highly touted youngster Remco Evenepoel (Team Deceuninck - Quick Step) is one to watch. Martin Guillaume (Team Cofidis), Nelson Oliveira (Movistar Team), Giovanni Visconti (Vini Zabù - KTM), Christophe Laporte (Cofidis, Credit Solutions) and Carlos Betancur (Movistar Team) are all outside bets.
