The Vuelta a España starts in Burgos this weekend.

The Grand Tour of Spain start this Saturday and finishes on Sunday 5 September. The race favours the climbers as usual with mountain finishes on Picón Blanco, Lagos de Covadonga and Gamoniteiro.  The latter being something of a beast.

Yup, when pros are riding at a snail’s pace, you know it’s nasty. Pogacar is quite the young phenom . . . a lot of new young riders emerging: vdPoel, Van Aert, Evenepoel, Pogacar, Carapaz, Bernal. I think the likes of Nibali, Froome, Cav, Porte, van Garderen, Greipel have had their day – and I don’t mean that to sound disrespectful, but there seems to be a real class/crop of youngsters coming through.

Yea, isn’t it awesome what these young guys are doing. That was quite a stage today! Pogacar certainly looks like he has a great future. Roglic showed something I hadn’t really seen from him too. Nice to see that he didn’t just play “defense”.

Yes, and only one of us has Pogacar in their Vuelta OTR!

Nice win by a wily old vet today. Always happy to see Phil Gil get a win – especially after being left off the Tour squad.

I saw that too. I can imagine everyone living in that building when asked, will say “no, no, officer, those are not my marijuana plants. I had no idea they were there!”

On another note … I tried to post in Photos yesterday. Actually posted twice, but neither one is showing up. Don’t know if there’s something you need to do on your end. If you can see what I posted, they are a duplicate and just accept the second one. Thanx!

I just posted again. Seeing anything? Is there a file size limit? The photo is 5.4MB.

Damn. Roche and Carthy out. Bad news all around. Roche was going well and Carthy was looking good.

Good thing I just checked. Changed my OTR picks accordingly.

The Spanish Hill Climb Championship. In terms of just pure fun, my favorite of the Grand Tours.
