This last week saw a lot of great racing in the Tour of Britain – as well as a few downright lovely moments for a couple of future cyclists! So we have all out Wout, Ganna’s European stars and other delights.
Our last Vuelta outing of 2021 made all the more sparkly by contributions from the Twitterstream. Another big shoutout to #Couchpeloton for keeping us all in high spirits through the last week …
From fairly ho-hum to one of the most bonkers endings ever (on so many levels), Stage 20 of Vuelta a Espana 2021 gave fans a grand tour stage that will stick in our memories for a good long time. We had *the* most magnificent stage steal ever with Ag2r’s Clement Champoussin, some significant changes in the GC top 10 setting up an ITT battle for a final podium step, some inspiring teamwork from Cofidis and Deceuninck-QuickStep, and one of the most bizarre abandons we never saw by Miguel Angel Lopez. Through all this, Primoz Roglic, cool as a cucumber, made more time on his rivals and will be wearing the red skinsuit in tomorrow’s final stage.
