Now that Olympic road cycling is over ...

... looking forward to the Vueleta a Espana. Froome will be the leader of Sky and Contador of Saxo Bank. Can Cobo come out of his shell again? This should be fun. Start list here:

Interesting that the entire south half of the country has been left out.

I don't really mind. Looking at the parcours, I'm excited about this. Even the sole ITT has a Cat 3 climb right in the middle of it, with a legitimate descent.

Does VeloGames do the Vuelta? I see no mention on their website under the "Other Races" tab...

I think this will easily be the most exciting GT of the year. There are so many under-rated, unheralded Spanish and Colombian climbers that can potentially shine over these parcours. Even last year, when Wiggins stuck out like a sore thumb compared to the rest of the field, we saw nothing but surprises.

The Froome surprise is out of the bag, but I have a feeling there will be new ones.

Interesting also how many more top riders are entered in the USA Pro Challenge.
