Stage description

Start time (first team): 15:22 CEST
Finish time (last team finish): 17:15 CEST

The 2002 Vuelta starts off in one of Spain's largest and liveliest cities, Valencia. Stage one will see the race begin with a team time trial that will start at the "Museo de las Ciencias" and finish in front of "Puente de las Flores" almost 25 kilometres later.

The Team Time Trial will see teams average 50 kilometres an hour through the streets of Valencia, and will really showcase the teams for the viewing public. It will also be La Vuelta's first Team Time Trial since 1992, a race that was won in a time of 37 minutes and 51 seconds by the Gatorade team over a distance of 32.6 kilometres.
