I'm personally wondering where all the big names are at the Vuelta, sure there are some, but for it being a grand tour with lots of climbing, it seems pretty sparse.
The ones I can think of who missed this Vuelta are Sagan, Froome, Contador, Wiggins, Evans and Cavendish. I'm not including Andy Schleck because he's just
a big name.
Froome, and Contador weren't in the Giro but neither were Rodriguez, Valverde, Cancellara, or Gilbert who all were in the Vuelta.
It's more appropriate to compare the line up in the Vuelta with that of the Giro and if you do the Vuelta holds its own.
