Amazing day at La Vuelta 2018

An amazing day at yesterday (12/09/2018, Stage 17). The gradient, the fans, the fog, and the racing all made for one of those special Vuelta days .Only classified as “medium mountains” it was alarmingly steep with a slow motion finish as splits took the  bunch apart and shook up the GC battle. Michael Woods was pretty emotional as he won in what has been a turbulent year for him and his family but was eloquent and articulate in post race interviews. All these things made for a classic day in a classic bike race which is surely now the most gripping grand tour on the calendar after years and years of being the forgotten child on the race schedule. Viva La Vuelta!
