Vuelta Tweets of the Week : All smizes, boiling heat and burning cars!

The second week of Vuelta a Espana 2021 and we’ve had some great stage finishes, a thrilled red jersey and lots of emotion. We’ve also had a lot of racing elsewhere, which included a flaming car on the course! They’ll try anything to stop Remco Evenepoel

Taking the stage

Stage 10  : Michael Storer took his second breakaway win, while Primoz Roglic decided to go for some attacks, yet the road attacked him as he slid and fell on the descent.

Stage 11 : It was all about the wall … and it was Cort, Roglic and Mas. It was a great stage.

Stage 12 : Another great stage win, this time Magnus Cort came good.

Stage 13 : It was Florian Senechel, taking over from a dropped Fabio Jakobsen … but Jakobsen was not happy that his own sprint train dropped him! There were words.

Stage 14 : It was all in for the pox – and the stage win – for Bedhead Bardet 

Stage 15 : It was another hot day in the mountains. And it was another breakaway who took the stage – Rafal Majka from about 87km out.

The red jersey

We have a Wanty rider in red – and they’re doing a great job defending it. Hurrah for Odd Christian Eiking for honouring the leader’s jersey


The smize and that fall

Smizing is a thing.

Belinda doing what she does best – talks about cycling with humour and passion.

When your own team car takes you out! But Jay Vine might have been down (for a while) but not out. If he was in any doubt, he knows he ain’t on Zwift now!

The final race of Aru

The Vuelta is Fabio Aru‘s last race and Sunday, we saw him getting in a break with the eventual stage winner, Rafal Majka.

Other places, other races

The cycling calendar is filled to the brim with races in other places …

Sunday’s Bretagne Classic was a fierce race.

When you have a different race on every device

During the Bretagne Classic, there was an incident with cows. Yes. Cows.

Remco Evenepoel was back to his winning ways. Not even a ‘flaming roadside car’ on the course couldn’t deter him.

Valverde back on the trainer
