La Vuelta

Fernando
is right: La Vuelta (Cycling Tour
of Spain) has been this year, as it happened in the previous 5/6 years, the best cycling race
in the season. There isn’t a clear favorite, like in the Tour de France, so many people
ride hard for winning, which makes it the most interesting race for the public. The only bad
thing about La Vuelta is that many non-spanish riders (Armstrong, Ulrich, Rumsas, Kloden, Basso)
never come to ride, which I’m sure would make it a much better race. But even without them, the
last few years La Vuelta has had plenty of suspense, emotion, and fighting. Congratulations
to Roberto Heras, who is the 2nd rider in history to win 3 vueltas.
