ITV4 will broadcast daily highlights of La Vuelta a Espana following its successful coverage of Chris Froome’s ride to a second victory in the Tour de France.
 
Presenter Gary Imlach and reporter Matt Rendell are joined by commentators Ned Boulting and David Millar for the race, which starts in Puerto Banus on Saturday August 22 and ends in Madrid on Sunday September 13, covering a total distance of 3,360 miles.
 
It's the fifth year ITV4 has broadcast the race, and this year the channel will air a 60-minute highlights programme from each race day.
 
Last year’s Vuelta was won by Alberto Contador, and this year’s race which features 13 hill and mountain stages is likely to be contested by the likes of Tour winner Froome, alongside rivals Nairo Quintana, who came second in France, and Vincenzo Nibali, who finished fourth.
