Tour of the Gila vs Vuelta a Castilla y León

NYT headline from last year:
Armstrong Finds Oasis at Sedate Tour of Gila
Even made one fan reply to Armstrong:
"If July doesn't work out, there's always the Tour of Los Alamos."

Uuummmm, Nuclear powered pedalist. Now there's a thought.:eek:

Here is Tour of the Gila....climbing on EVERY stage?

http://www.tourofthegila.com/racecourses.html


Past winners are mostly Spanish or mostly American, depending on the Race.

Big Spanish names and Big American names, depending on the Race.
Lots of lesser know names from both coutries also

Seems to me the Vuelta a Castilla y León is the Spanish version of America's Tour of the Gila. Hopefully, both races continue to thrive....

Which race do you think is harder?

Levi has won both of them, so he would have the definitive answer...

I guess the race for denim market superiority has changed ever since global outsourcing for cheaper labour has taken route. Sure, I think Levi Strauss has won the Castilla y Leon denim market and the New Mexico market before, but with today's difficult economic times and the denim jacket experiencing a bit of a lull in popularity with today's disenchanted youth, the market has become smaller and the choices broader, so asking Levi Strauss which market is the more difficult to conquer might not be terribly accurate.

Maybe Clavin Klein, Lee, and even the Jordache people would also have a say as to which market is more desirable, then again they probably just care about the money rather than whether New Mexico or Castilla y Leon is cooler, that is harder.
