La Vuelta a España 2008 – Day 1: Stage 12, Burgos – Suances

-

There’s gas in the car, the sun is out, we just had Donna Summer on Kiss FM and we’re en route Comillas to pester the Astana mechanics about what gears Bert and Levi will be riding tomorrow in Burgos – what more could you want out of life ?

I wasn’t so chirpy at 04.45 yesterday in the Days Inn at Stansted when the alarm rang.

The flight was ok and we picked up the hire car in Bilbao without drama. The weather was horrendous though, cold, windy and raining hard.

First stop was a roadside cantina for a café con leche and a bocadillo con tortilla (or two) then Suances to get ‘credded up.’
