The Vuelta a San Juan is on the calendar ....... for now. However what UCI categorization it is given and what teams will be there is not clear.

At the very minimum it should be .2 with just the local CTs and some clubs. The organizers are trying however to remain at the .Pro level and in addition to the locals to have national teams from Colombia, Ecuador, Italy, Spain etc. Italy do usually go there with their track team, but it doesn't seem realistic to expect Ineos, Movistar etc to allow their stars to go ride there.

Other than the TT and the climb to Alto Colorado all stages would begin and end at the Villicum racetrack which doesn't sound too thrilling.

    Furahi Day had me scratching my head for a bit. Is it just a phonetic Friday? Kinda

    It’s Furahi Day!!!

    Happy new weekend everybody!

    And just in case the joke flew right past you, Furahi Day is what young folks in E.Afrika call Friday, notice they sound kinda similar. And of course I’d jump into any opportunity to give a wee Swahili lesson so here goes:

    ‘Furahi‘ comes from the noun ‘furaha‘ which means happiness, so basically ‘furahi‘ means be happy! Needless to say, Furahi Day for us is the day that we are all happy (like seriously who dares be grumpy on a Friday?!)

    So have fun everybody and if you do drink, do the smart thing and get yourself a taxi (or a sub driver)!

    Nice mix of teams from all corners of the globe.

    The stages don't look bad either. Not much there for the sprinters.
