30 Sep

A challenging, scenic course at Innsbruck provided a unique platform for dominance to one of the best National Teams in recent memory (men’s or women’s). Bonus points for seeing a rider who’s won everything but finally slip on the rainbow stripes.

And it all comes down to this—the final mountain day of the 2018 Vuelta packed six climbs into less than 100k, and played out fast, active, and unorthodox. Lots of teamwork, GC and KOM battles, and I think a satisfying conclusion (provided—as I hope we can expect—nothing too interesting happens tomorrow). Enjoy!

And we’re off on the first HTRWW’d Vuelta since 2014, and the first real hilltop finish did not disappoint. Strong action and a perfectly primed GC for another two weeks of typically unpredictable Vuelta a España action.
