The 2019 La Vuelta a España is a three-week Grand Tour cycling stage race that is taking place in Spain, Andorra and France between 24 August and 15 September 2019.
The race will be the 74th edition of La Vuelta a España and will be the final Grand Tour of the 2019 cycling season.
For the majority of businesses and people, this will mean nothing and they will not even be aware that this is on. However, if you love cycling or your company, suppliers to clients are into the race, you should be to.
One of the main rules of marketing is to understand your customer and talk about what they are talking about. In a nutshell, if they are interested, you should be talking about it.
