Jonas Vingegaard and Tadej Pogačar going head to head this early in the season, after the amazing 2022 Tour de France, is a dream come true for cycling fans. Both the Tour de France champions performed exceptionally well in Spanish races in February, achieving a combined 9 wins in just 9 race days.
Jonas Vingegaard delivered the second victory for Jumbo-Visma in the 2023 season with a huge climbing performance on Monte Trega, accelerating and quickly creating a gap against his rivals in O Gran Camiño Stage 2. A promising start from the Tour de France champion.
The second edition of O Gran Camiño will feature the reigning Tour de France champion Jonas Vingegaard who will begin his season here, a huge coup for the organisers. The early Spanish pre-season races have been blessed with big stars, with Pogačar previously attending Clasica Jaen and Vuelta a Andalucia. Here in Galicia, Vingegaard's biggest challenger is likely to be Movistar with Ruben Guerreiro as well as Cofidis who bring three viable GC leaders.
