75th Vuelta a España
« on: August 28, 2010, 03:04:22 pm »
Looking forward to the team time trial tonight, 10pm local time.
Also read that nearly all the mountain top stages are on the weekends , so should get a few people on the side of the road.

How come it's on so late? I just tuned into Eurosport, expecting it to have started by now...

Will they have lights on the bikes?  ;D

Not Euskatel.. Dropped four riders by the turn.

Ah. The turn is only a short distance from the finish.

But he won't get it (1st cat mountain finish today).  More of that GC nonsense.
