The World Championships have been completed, and the 2013 cycling season enters its last knockings as October dawns. The WorldTour is drawing to a close, and one last flurry of races across Europe heralds the start of the off-season. But that’s not to say there isn’t plenty of good racing still to come this month. Here’s a quick look at what’s in store.
Still breathless after the Zombie (Horner) vs Shark (Nibali) showdown on the Angliru, this week we wrap up the Vuelta and look forward to a week in Tuscany.
No George Clooney or Kate Upton this week – sorry about that – but we do recap the Vuelta’s middle week and discuss its stage winners: three young guns, an ageing zombie and the object of Kitty’s affections – and holder of an active restraining order against her – the Sacred Haunches™ himself, Fabian Cancellara.
