Feeling pretty glum that the Vuelta looks like it is slipping away from Chris Froome. Maybe, hopefully I will be proved wrong. I so hoped his reward would come in Spain. In truth he would have gone into the Tour with his best form and he was flying then, so understandable that by the end of August he is not quite where he would want to be.
Setting aside my disappointment about Chris, it has been the most exciting Vuelta I can remember. Great route so far and the top four have made it a real battle. Maybe we should have time bonuses back in the Tour de France. Seems to be making for really aggressive racing.
