Vuelta Roadside: With this year's Vuelta a España making a return to Asturias and l'Angliru, Ed Hood got his diary and photo album out for one of his favourite days on a Grand Tour. The mythical climb of the Alto de l'Angliru sticks in the memory for reasons both political and sporting - Ed's day on the Angliru.
The fireworks that was expected on the summit of l'Angliru, did not disappoint. The lead group was down to the bare essentials when Hugh Carthy blew past the others on the steep ramps for the stage win and 3rd overall. Primoz Roglič was in trouble and lost time to the repeat overall leader, Richard Carapaz.
2020 Vuelta Route: The 2020 Vuelta a España is a very northern affair. The start is in Holland, probably the toughest day is in France, two stages are in Portugal and the final stage to Madrid is the most southerly point - A very different Spanish Grand Tour. Ed Hood has a 'First Look' at the route and dissects each stage from Utrecht to Madrid.
