    ITV4 definitely have at least a highlights package, probably at 7pm.

    Looking forward to some great stages and good racing.

    Yes, although mentioned above that Egan Bernal will not be taking part in the Vuelta he suffered an horrendous facial trauma yesterday in a crash during the Clasica San Sebastián.

    Stage 20. So they’ll be knackered.

    105km, 4000m climbing, 6 categorised climbs :eek:

    Stage 19 is described by the organisers as "flat".

    It ends with a cat 1 climb :D

    I'm lost with the apologies and really not necessary. Without wishing to distract from the vuelta, it's the giro I looked forward to most.

    The Boy danny la rouge is probably wrong.

    Meh. They have compact gearsets and waffer thin bikes that weigh naff all. They should be made to do it on my 13kg cross bike with a broken rear derailleur and loaded panniers.

    Or a Brompton.

    Simon Yates looking ready for the Vuelta. He is an incredibly good rider to watch.
