I DON'T KNOW ANY FRENCH, BUT I DO KNOW MUCHO ESPANOL. So, let me let you in on a couple of secrets.
First, La Vuelta de Espana is the most entertaining of the three Grand Tours - 3 week bike race. If you're not watching it, check it out... Stage 5 was today.
Second, La Vuelta does not mean it's a bike tour. It literally means The Turn.
Third, El Giro (de Italia) does not mean it's a bike tour. It literally means The Lap
Finally, Le Tour (de France) does not mean it's a bike tour. It literally means The Round.
La Vuelta takes a real whack at turning 3 week racing on it's head,
It gets me geeked up for another lap of daily racing,
To see what they'll do this time round.
