                    [Title] => Unforgettable Vuelta
                    [Summary] => 

I always believed that in a Grand Tour, the race can be lost on the flat stages and won on the mountains or during time trials.

With the top 3 overall just within 57sec within each other, expect a cardiac finish.

Carlos Sastre, who won the Tour de France back in 2008, is probably the most disappointing champion that I've ever seen since I started watching the Grand Boucle in 1989.

The 2010 Tour de France is over and Alberto Contador was able to defend his title although not in the way he would want it to be.

After that brutal stage 9, two riders have stood out: defending champion Alberto Contador and last years runner-up Andy Schleck, the winner of stage 8. Cadel Evans, the erstwhile yellow jersey, was defrocked after it was revealed that he had sustained a broken elbow during a crash on stage 8. He toughed it out though but finished 8 minutes in arrears, and now sits at 18th place.

Australian Cadel Evans is often described as the most successful pro cyclist who has yet to win something big.

It seems that after all the bluster, 2-time Tour de France champion will ride for ASTANA next year.
