VUELTA A ESPANA  - 
 
The Queen stage of this year's Vuelta brought us a few surprises

Froome lost 8 mins and is no longer a contender for a podiumspot.. Aru is back to his best and takes the leader's jersey but the biggest surprise was Dutchman Tom Dumoulin... Who would have thought that a big guy like him, a TT specialist, only 24, not only survived this monstrous stage but did even better : he left seasoned climbers like Valverde behind him, limited his losses and is now 3rd in the GC, only 30 secs behind Aru.

Last year he took bronze in the Worlds behind Tony Martin and Wiggo. If he can keep within touching distance of the leader, he could retake the red jersey next wednesday in the TT.

Best rider so far in this Vuelta, no doubt !

Vuelta a espana - Rest day
It’s been a week of surprises with a collection of riders finally getting the wins they’ve been promising whether Dumoulin, Esteban Chaves or Caleb Ewan. Even Peter Sagan found winning ways again.
The questions on many people's lips is :
How far can Dumoulin go ?
How far can Tom Dumoulin go? Once seen as a time trial specialist he's proven versatile, aggressive and surprising. But as much as he's been underrated by many this year the high mountains seem too much.

Those look like hiking boots to me, so wouldn't be surprised if a "rest" day to Hansen is a bloody long walk in the mountains to the rest of us ;)

VUELTA A ESPANA  - 
 
Preview : ‘Dramatic’ Vuelta stage 11 features six rated climbs Six major climbs in just 85 miles in the thin air of the Pyrénées. That can mean only one thing — the Vuelta a España is hitting full throttle

After 10 brutal days of racing, and coming right after a rest day, the stage might not deliver the fireworks many are expecting. Legs are tired, and motivation is waning, but the climbers know this is their best chance to take the initiative and break the GC gridlock.

The pack will certainly blow up on the first climb, and the gruppetto will be working their calculators to make sure they make the time cut. The stage will likely be more a race of attrition over the endless climbs, with the winning moves coming on the final 8km climb.

Wednesday's stage 11 in the Spanish grand tour has six major climbs and could play a crucial role in who wins the overall crown.

Could be a bit of gamesmanship. It'll be interesting to see what the mountains bring!

Just a turn of phrase :-). It'll never come back. The Milk Marketing Board is dead. The Milk Race was a neat race name. Like the Peace Race. I'm old-fashioned about race or stadium names and don't like these sponsors added to them.
