And FWIW even 2 million is an incredibly steep price for a title sponsorship.


I'm guessing the part of the article where it says the guy in charge of the state's cycling programme is helping them find a new sponsor could be translated as: the organisers were hoping the state would sponsor the race themselves.

That was a nice KOM camera van Garderen over first

- Valverde isn't out of reach
I bet he and Luis Leon catch vG on the descent.

Gilbert wins the sprint comfortably ahead of Valverde and Luis Leon Sanchez. And with those elbows pointing everywhere, it must have been Zakarin in 4th.

No offence to anyone but wouldn't all this have been better in the lesser known results thread?

I was at the race and saw Gilbert at the start and the finish. He was more than happy to have photos taken before the race although less so at the finish. Sometimes I think fans expect too much after the races as riders are tired , have to get warm, do interviews etc. I rarely try to approach them then other than to say well done etc. Most of the riders seemed pretty accommodating to me in Murcia city at the finish. However I would say that quite often the non Spanish speaking riders can get annoyed with Spanish fans I remember Mark Cavendish - ok not necessarily a good example - calling one guy a f*****g W****r at the start last year when he was trying to get a photograph.
