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 …
Yes, it’s time for the hottest race on record – the spicy Vuelta a Espana. While we love the craziness of the Vuelta, sometimes it’s the languor of those uneventful stages that brings out the spice and Tweet heat from fans that is GOLD for this column. And we’ll be serving it up through the whole three weeks. Vamos!

- Have Ineos really reinvented cycling to win the Giro? (clue: no)
- Sunweb and Quickstep impress the hell out of us.
- How hard is it to put on a jacket?
- What next for the “old-timers”?
- Can the Vuelta get any more nuts?

*we maybe spent about ten seconds discussing the actual winner of the Giro.
