Pre-race favourites

Chris Froome is on the hunt for more cycling history, as he seeks to become only the third man to win the Tour de France and the Vuelta a Espana in the same year.

The Team Sky rider wrapped up the first leg of this potential Grand Tour double last month, as he won his fourth Tour. Now attentions will turn to the Vuelta, where he has finished as the runner-up on three separate occasions.

Should he take overall victory, Froome will join Jacques Anquetil (1963) and Bernard Hinault (1973) to win both events in the same season. Longstanding rivals like Vincenzo Nibali, Alberto Contador and Fabio Aru will not make things easy for the Englishman, though.

Read on for the vital viewing information ahead of the Vuelta, the prize money details for the race and a preview of the final Grand Tour of 2017.

The winner of the general classification wins €150,000 of a total prize pool of €1,120,230. The purse for a stage win is €11,000.
