With Lotto-Soudal’s recent announcement of Rafael Wall’s missing the upcoming Vuelta a España, the spot has been opened for Adam Hansen to start on his 19th consecutive Grand Tour. This year’s Vuelta looks to be an exciting race, with teams brining their best riders for what will be non-stop racing action. The biggest names in cycling will be there, which we’re sure is going to make for quite the narrative.
But one of the biggest stories of the upcoming tour certainly has to be Hansen’s 19th consecutive. Grand Tours are not an easy feat, to participate in 19 consecutive certainly adds a different level of strength and consistency. Which Hansen has shown in his career.
