Re: 79ª Volta a Portugal em Bicicleta (4 a 15 de Agosto de 2
The Portuguese scene is like pro cycling's parallel universe, with different laws of physics. And the Volta is the Tour de France of this universe.Gigs_98 said:Okay, can anyone explain this race to me. All I know is that this race is some kind of fan favorite, with riders I have never heard about who seem to ride completely crazily and have never heard anything about modern cycling tactics.

Can anyone explain the fascination of the Volta because every time I look into this thread I get completely confused
