Gallery: Masks and elbow bumps at stage 1 of the Vuelta a Burgos

Tuesday’s opening stage of the Vuelta a Burgos saw the pro peloton adhere to the new rules for COVID-19 safety, which included mandatory masks, temperature checks, and the use of hand sanitizer. The stage was held in front of few fans, and there were few photographers and media invited to the event.

The Spanish stage race marks the return of international pro cycling, and officials seemed focused on making sure the event went off without a hiccup.
