Since 1935, and annually since 1955, the Vuelta a España has been the most important multiday cycle racing event in Spain. In the 63 editions of the race, riders from eleven countries have won the general classification. A mountains classification has been held every edition too, while the first points classification was held in 1945 and annually since 1955. Madrid has staged the most Vuelta-starts and finishes, and has been the regular finish city since 1994.
