The new finish into Uraidla provided a parcours made for attacking and the end result was a GC well and truly shaken up.
Introducing our guest VeloVoice, David Fletcher, a 15-year-old cycling journalist who has the knack for being in the right place at the right time. He’s British but lives in Galicia, Spain and runs his own blog, sprint-final. He nabbed the attention of a few riders in this year’s Vuelta and will be sharing some interviews with us. First up, the mighty Adam Hansen!
It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a Grand Tour’s top step be decided on the penultimate stage but we saw it today. With a short (134km) stage that was climbing and descending from the very start and the top 4 spots of the GC so close, it was a day of reckoning. In the end, Rein Taaramae (Katusha) took a solo stage win and Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) took the maglia rosa and this year’s Giro.
