Vuelta a Burgos 2021 (August 3-7)

Page 9 - Get up to date with the latest news, scores & standings from the Cycling News Community.
Last year was contract year as well and he was poor, people like to make out he does not try when really it's the opposite, recovering from the iliac artery issue is not easy.
Last year he was also top 10 in the Tour de l'Ain and Burgos and 5th in the Mt Ventoux challenge. He can still get decent results in smaller short stage races and one day races, his recovery on the other hand is gone. He can no longer handle consecutive mountain stages and after trying to hang on for dear life for waaay to long in a gt he just cracks hard.
