The Vuelta is approaching the hunting ground of the eagle from Toledo today. 
Federico Bahamontes rode a lot of climbs in this area. The only way was up for him: there is no point in getting tired in a descent. You can’t win points for the mountain classification with it.

Material problems at a crucial moment, what a lousy moment yesterday for Wilco Kelderman..
Bad luck in cycling is of all times. Like that poor Romain Maes in 1936. He had a flat tire and changed it in a hurry. But it was all in vain, because his pump didn’t work. He had to walk to find one that did.

The first edition of the Vuelta a España was organized in 1935 by the newspaper "Informaciones”. What a beautifully designed ode to the Montañas Rojas!

Joop Zoetemelk gets aquainted with wearing the yellow leaders jersey in 1979. #vuelta#vueltaaespaña#cycling#cyclinglife#joopzoetemelk#lepatron#eljefe#yellowtshirt#whenstyleenteredthepeloton

Exactly 124 years ago, this well-dressed Italian rider was born in Colle Umberto. In the thirty-three years that he lived, he left his mark on his bike. Salute Ottavia!

One more day.. Since 1975 it is tradition that the last stage finishes on the Champs-Élysées in Paris. We enjoyed every single stage the past three weeks and are looking forward to the Sprint Final!#tourdefrance#tdf#champselysees#final#sprint#whenstyleenteredthepeloton

You can’t ride a time trial without a serious warm up. We are used to the images before the start: sweaty riders nicely side by side on their roller benches. Tom Simpsom is one of the first riders to introduce a indoor cycle trainer in 1960. To the hilarity of this greatness on the bike!
