Anyone following La Vuelta then?
Trying to keep up with the ITV4 highlights packages – finding the Aussie commentator (AND THE SOUND QUALITY!!!!!) lacking compared to Phil and Paul…. and can someone tell Ned to stop bobbing about everytime he’s doing a piece to camera like he’s sitting on a giant spring!!!!!
Great that it’s on free-to-air though.Posted 6 years agoHazeSubscriber
Trying to follow it, but struggling due to a mixture of trying to record Eurosport’s random scheduling and staying awake as I’m watching it late at night after the gf has retired.
Still have the Vattenfall classic to watch, the USA Pro Cycling Challenge isn’t getting a look in.Posted 6 years ago
Chris Froome just started, Brad is off in 3 mins.
Vuelta always feels a bit of an anti-climax – end of a busy season after the Classics, the Giro, the Tour, it seems a bit “tacked on” really. Doesn’t get the crowds, the terrain isn’t quite as exciting as the Tour and it suffers from less/poorer coverage.
Shame cos yesterdays stage with Brad and Chris up the front on that final climb was great to watch.Posted 6 years agollamaMember
you can’t deny that he is confident:
“Everyone was at his max,” he stated. “When I push 450 watts like I did on Sunday in such a difficult climb, who in the world can do more? Only Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck but they aren’t here. I’ve seen some guys attacking but they couldn’t maintain their speed and stay away. They even paid for their efforts.
“When I took the lead of the front group three kilometres away from the top, I rode fast despite the head wind. I’m pretty good at guessing when my adversaries aren’t well. For three kilometres, I’ve ridden like Miguel Indurain! I had never done that before. I’ve done it after the great work done by Chris [Froome]. It’s fantastic for him to be in the lead. He deserves it and it takes some pressure from me.”
Hoping for an eventful stage today anywayPosted 6 years ago
