Being bored on a conference call has its advantages. I called up Cycling.tv and while waiting for today’s stage to start, I watched the prologue team time trial with the sound off.
A quick recap, the Vuelta has put into place several innovations (click here) in this year’s race. One is the 7km team time trial across a pancake flat course. I have to tell you, there is nothing more beautiful than the team time trial. The prologue format really highlights the poetry on a person racing a bicycle. It is worth the 19.99Euros.
Please watch. I promise, you will not be disappointed. I hope the ASO is watching.
