Stage 8 Valls > Igualada 166,9 km - Hilly
« on: August 27, 2019, 19:29 »
Transition stage La Vuelta styles 



Problem is at 132km to go



7.3 km at 6.7 %

Not sure any strinter will get over that with the group if the hammer goes, which then leads to the question who is suited today, most likely a breakaway. With tomorrows craziness ( even for the Vuelta, yes) I expect the GC boys to ride tempo up the climb keeping their powder dry for tomorrows expected fireworks






Breakaway for the win, who If Nico has lost the GC lead a perfect stage for him

  • Of course, if this turns out someday to be the industry standard integrated handlebar-computer-braking solution then I'll eat my kevlar-reinforced aerodynamic hat.

    Should be a stage for a breakaway indeed, I guess

    If there were another 132km "to go" at that point, it would be a problem indeed.  :P
