The 2007 Vuelta will start off with a road stage that begins and finishes in Vigo, thus turning the Galician city into the world centre of cycling on Saturday, 1 September. The riders for the 21 teams registered in the event will have to cover 145 kilometres in a stage which will see the first points awarded in the Mountain Classification, even though there are only two 3rd category climbs, at the 36 and 109 kilometre marks. <br> <br> In the final kilometres of this initial stage, the Vuelta has prepared quite a show for the fans, with a circuit at the finish that calls for several laps in order to delight the Vigo natives at Samil Beach, an ideal setting for the great sprinters to shine. <br> <br> Brief History: This is the 12th time that Vigo has hosted the start of a Vuelta stage. And the city already knows what it&#039;s like to host not just the start of one day of the race, but to kick off the entire event. After all, Vigo was transformed into the starting line for the event in 1965 and 1967. The last time a Vuelta stage finished in Vigo was in 1993, with a road stage won by the sprinter Alfonso Guti&Atilde;&copy;rrez. <br>
