From the article:
”The 2021 Vuelta will start with a time trial from an even more unusual place — inside the 800-year-old cathedral in Burgos, Spain.
“It will be the first time a cycling race starts from inside a cathedral,” Vuelta director Javier Guillén said Thursday.”

Definitely eyebrows here. An idea for the start meant to get attention, and it sure does that.

They better have lightning bolt protection.
And pilgrims will need to plan on missing Burgos then. It'll be a zoo.

It is incredible what amounts of money are involved with these kind of sportsevents. Exclusive broadcast rights and staggering budgets for advertisement.
I can only imagine the budget the ayuntamiento ( and other levels ) had to put on the table for hosting this event.
I will keep a neutral tone about the position of the Church in this " experiment ".
