The 2015 Vuelta a Asturias was the 58th edition of the Vuelta a Asturias cycling stage race. It was the first edition since 2013, as the race did not take place in 2014 due to financial issues.[1] The race was rated as a 2.1 event as part of the 2015 UCI Europe Tour.[2] The race included two stages: it started on 2 May with a stage from Oviedo to Pola de Lena and finished on 3 May with a stage that started in Soto de Ribera and then finished back in Oviedo.[1] The defending champion was Amets Txurruka (Caja Rural–Seguros RGA).[2]

The race was won by Igor Antón (Movistar Team), who won a solo victory on the first stage then finished in the lead group on the second stage to secure victory by 14 seconds.
