    La Vuelta/ Tour of Britain

    I am quite getting into watching these on ITV4, I am sure there are others watching too

    La Vuelta is similar to the Tor de France, with lots of climbs and different stage winners but every stage on the Tour of Britain has come down to a sprint finish. Now I know we don't have the same mountains has Spain and France but I would have thought they would have at least one stage in the Lake District or Snowdonia or even the Highlands.

    It seems that has long as the winner of the time trial finishes in the peleton he will win the Tour.

    I have enjoyed watching it, today's stage was a good but again a sprint finish,, what do the cyclists on here think?

    Watched the Vuelta with great interest, especially as it went past our village. Horrendous weather last week through Andalucia,

    Think Froome should deserve at least top 3 in SPOTY. But for a number of reasons I suspect he'll do well to get nominated.
