Because the Vuelta has a lot tougher mountain stages the way they are meant to be?Sasquatch said:I for one rate the Tour de France the equivalent to the Tour Down Under. A boring irrelevant race. Until they fix the parcours up and make mountain stages the way they are meant to be made, and make it tougher, the Tour de France will never be an event I look forward to. I look forward to the Giro and Vuelta way more.Eshnar said:I would be very surprised actually. That didn't happen in the early 2000's when the Tdf was as thrilling as a military parade... I would even say the Tour got even a bigger fanbase during those years, wrt Giro and Vuelta.Sasquatch said:The giro and vuelta are much more enjoyable than the Tour and it wouldnt' surprise me if a lot of people start focusing their attention more to those races.
