Vuelta a Andalucía #63RdS
« on: February 07, 2017, 11:37 »
The Tour of Andalucia was created in 1925 by the then Secretary of the Union Velocipédica Spanish, Seville Miguel Arteman. After its first edition, it would not be disputed until thirty years later when, in 1955, the Cyclist Malagueña organized the second edition.

From 1956 until 1973 the brothers Antonio and José Gómez Téllez, presided over by Emilio Ramos, organized the Vuelta a Andalucía. Although, Emilio Ramos in 1973 contacted Luis Cuevas, organizer of cycling tests, to give oxygen to the first test of Andalusia.

From 1974 to 1977 Emilio Ramos and Luis Cuevas worked together for the good of Andalusian cycling. It is possible to emphasize in those four editions the passage to Ceuta, whose stages made history with a pleasant memory.

In 1978 Andalusia did not have elite cycling. It was then that Luís Cuevas, alone, created a new competition called "Ruta Ciclista del Sol", which covered in some part the Andalusian territory to follow the communities of Murcia and Valencia.

The Ruta del Sol was shining brighter and in 1986, commemorating the first anniversary of the "opening of the gate", the Ruta del Sol entered Gibraltar on 5 February. It was there when the Andalusian government awarded Luis Cuevas asking him to organize the first test of Andalusia, giving it the name of Vuelta a Andalucía "Ruta Ciclista del Sol".

From the beginning of the Vuelta a Andalucía, the company Deporte Internacional, SA DEPORINTER collaborates very closely in its organization, until in 1986 the Spanish Federation of Cycling and the highest political stay of the Junta de Andalucía decide to entrust the integral organization of the Test DEPORINTER, by the hand of Luis Cuevas. We work hard to improve the Tour of Andalusia year after year, and finally the result does not wait.

The International Cyclist Union (UCI) awards you the highest score of all the international professional cycling events registered in 2000 and 2001. With 99.5 points out of 100, the result obtained exceeds the score received for other tests of great relevance and prestige, such as Is Tour de France, Tour of Italy, Tour of Spain and the World Championships.

Since the creation of the UCI Continental Circuits in 2005, the Vuelta a Andalucía belongs to the UCI Europe Tour, within category 2.1.
This is the first round that opens the national cycle calendar annually in February, so it is highly anticipated throughout the sector.

The significance of this event for the region is undeniable because of its great impact, its projection inside and outside Andalusia and the positive impact that it has on Andalusian society.

    So I've heard Berto looked decent

    Let's see what he can do tomorrow (I'll be able to watch :win )
    I expect Valverde to win, if Berto can finish second within 5-10 seconds it'd be great

    So Contador still attacks, but the attack was not followed by the long steady high pace (ref Guardigrele stage in the Tirreno Adriatico some years back). He needs to spend his team where it can tire the others (lower part of the climb) not let the rest of the peloton tire the team (riding in front for a million kms on the flats).

    tomorrow's ITT, via @raffilpt



    not easy at all it is, that climb right at the start averages at 8% over the final 900m. The downhill part is absolutely non-technical though

    Well...uhm...maybe...but I didn't say the team was performing poorly, but their resources were not spent on the decisive sections. Today's stage I think #trek Trek tactics looked a bit tighter. Also, #trek  Fabio Felline had a better day than yesterday and his work on the lead-out to Contador's attack was the kind that can put him in a mountain-train chain-gang for the rest of his career.

    Having said that,  #trek Contador can attack (surprise!) but does not seem able to drive home the advantage and win the race. I'll cut him some slack, it's February and his sights are on July so he should probably be no better at this time.

    Anyway, it looks like the GC is between  #bahrain Ion Izaguirre's and  #fdj Thibaut Pinot now. Am I forgetting someone?

    And by the way....Thibaut usually screws up finishes like this, I think he is improving! Great little win there!

    uhm, well, I wouldn't underestimate Valverde. He usually is flying at this time of the year, he also easily won the Ruta del Sol Prologue (only 7km, but still) three years ago, for example. This should be a time trial to his liking

    Corrected your little mistake there.   :)

    And here is some evidence:

    Flying like a bullet! Notice with this technique the tires doesn't really matter.

    so... what's the penalty for Bertie not wearing the leader's jersey?

    edit: anyway, it's fine I guess

    Quote
    1.3.055 In time trial stages, leaders may wear the aerodynamic jersey or skinsuit of their teams if the organiser does not provide an aerodynamic leader's jersey or skinsuit.

    Tomorrow's finish:



    There's 800m at ~5% leading up to the roundabout. Probably not enough for decisive GC action, but it could disrupt the trains to enable a late attack from someone non-threatening to take it.
