Not on the final day's TT bikes, just the road bikes.
I think I need a guide to the tires used at La Vuelta. Anybody know where to find such a thing?

I am pretty sure they're using the new tan wall GP5000's (previously a limited edition).

Such a guide would be interesting for the plethora of "officially, team X is riding [brand name], however, upon closer inspection they appear to be re-badged [other brand name, probably Continental]".

The "Competition" is their grand tour spec tubular. I doubt they were using clinchers. But could be a limited run tubular with a GP5000 tread pattern - those guys get all kinds of cool stuff the general public doesnt necessarily have access to

Vittoria is the tire supplier for Jumbo Visma at the 2021 Vuelta, from what I've previously read. Vittoria makes tubular tire and clinchers with a tan or light colored side wall.

I don't know how well they can control if a rider wants something different though for any one specific stage.
