Claus-Michael Möller, Signed 2001 Vuelta a España Mountains Jersey
An authentic Signed Mountains Jersey from the 2001 Vuelta a España, Stage 17
Claus-Michael Möller, who was in second place in the Mountain competition, had the honor of wearing the Orange Jersey when Jose Jimenez led in both the Points and Mountains competitions. Möller also won Stage 15, a mountain stage from Valencia to Alto de Aitana, at the Vuelta that year.
Inspired by the success of the Tour de France and Giro d’Italia, and the boost to the circulation of the sponsoring newspapers, Juan Pujol of the daily Informaciones paper worked with cyclist Celemte López Doringa to start a Grand Tour of Spain in 1935 to increase the circulation of his paper. The first edition of the Vuelta covered 3,431 km over 14 stages. The race was originally held in the spring but in 1995 was moved to September.
While the route changes each year, the format of the race stays the same with the appearance of at least two-time trials, the passage through the mountain chain of the Pyrenees, and the finish in the Spanish capital Madrid. The modern editions of the Vuelta a España consist of 21 day-long segments (stages) over a 23-day period that includes 2 rest days.
