Life and La Vuelta ’08 – According to Fabian Jeker


Every year I write a route preview of the up and coming Vuelta a España, normally I talk to the locals in my village and last year I had the input of Alex Coutts (Babes Only-Flanders) and David Harrigan (DFL). This year I managed to enlist the help of ex-pro, Fabian Jeker, and we spoke about next year’s Vuelta – but as these things often go, we spoke at length on many other topics: life; cycling; Festina; and the future.

Fabian has the perfect background to give a pro riders insight into La Vuelta. He was a pro from 1991 to 2005 and in that time rode 5 Tours de France, 4 Giro d’Italia’s and 9 Vuelta a Epaña’s and he likes to add that he has also driven a VIP car in 2 Vuelta’s, so that makes 11 Vuelta’s that he has “competed” in – and if you see the way he drives, well, its still a competition!
