Is La Vuelta too hard?


La Vuelta; have you seen the parcours? Brutal!

In my opinion, too hard; if it was Italy or Spain they’d engineer it to suit the characteristics of the ‘home boy,’ but in España it’s one for the mountain men – maybe they forgot that Alberto wasn’t riding; that we may have seen the best of Carlos; that Valverde will have a bad day and that José Manuel Fuente and Luis Ocaña have left us (God rest their souls).

Fuente and Ocaña would have loved this race route; back in the 70’s when Merckx ruled the Earth the Spaniards did things very differently to how we’re used to Grand Tours being ridden in this millenium.
