Cycling. Vuelta organizers want to pass the peloton... during an Atletico match

Marca spotted the unusual project and mentioned it to Unipublic, the organizing firm of the Vuelta.

The organizers of the Tour of Spain would like to use half-time at Wanga Metropolitano Stadium for the final stage on September 11th to allow the peloton to pass...in the middle of Atletico Madrid.

68,000 spectators can enjoy another spectacle during the 15 minute break between halves. The stadium is situated halfway between Madrid and Las Rozas, the city of arrival.

If the project is approved, it will require an exact calculation of the speed of each peloton in order to arrive at the pitch on time.

Unipublic hopes that this partnership between football and cycling will become a part of the final stage. Atletico, the owner of the stadium, is still not in discussions about the project.

This is not the first time cyclists have crossed a stadium. The Tour de France was concluded between 1903 and 1967 at Parc des Princes, and the 2017 time trial in Marseille saw riders cross the finish line at Stade Velodrome.
