Let the countdown begin . . . . 3 weeks 6 days to go  :-)

 

I seriously can't imagine what it takes to do Le Tour and then La Vuelta!

Isn't Quintana doing the Vuelta too?

Nairo is skipping Rio but plans on doing the Vuelta.. once they have figured out what went wrong during the TDF [emoji6]

Imagine being able to almost keep up with Froome whilst you have a virus . . . ;-)

 

"Quintana will reportedly undergo medical tests to determine what happened during the third week of the Tour with the Vuelta a Espana earmarked as his comeback race."

some really good beef

Hey now. That's uncalled for. That beef contained Clenbuterol which is clearly for weight management and in no way impacts the ability for a professional athlete to recover from prolonged exposure to endurance activities.

 

Definitely isn't used as a masking agent either  :ph34r:

Nairo Quintana? More like Noshow Quintana! 

 

To be fair, I'd also feel pretty sick if my view of the French countryside was restricted to the back of a team Sky jersey.

 

Hope there is a bit more switching of the lead during the Vuelta.

The Vuelta is a real treat for viewers.. always balls so walls racing.. the youngster stepping up and really taking it to the old guard.[emoji122] [emoji122]
