After more than 3,000km of arduous racing through France, Andorra and Spain, UAE Team Emirates wrapped-up their first Vuelta a España on Sunday, marking the culmination of a successful debut for the new team at the three historic Grand Tours.

The third and final of the three most prestigious races on the UCI WorldTour, the 2017 Vuelta provided 21 challenging stages and saw UAE Team Emirates achieve a stage victory, several top five and top ten finishes, as well as a 12th place General Classification (GC) finish for South African rider Louis Meintjes.

The Vuelta a España was the final showdown of the season and is the youngest of the three Grand Tours, starting in 1935. The Giro d’Italia began in 1909 whilst the Tour de France was established in 1903.
