Tyler And Vuelta Course

Every cyclist has his or her favorite tracks and courses.

Tyler has experienced and loved the laid back environment that Vuelta offers. Even though the courses that run through this region do not offer him much for sprint finishes, but he loves the Vuelta a Espana. Indeed, this course in Spain might burn his skin and freckled face but this weekend he would begin the grand tour here. It is a tour that is taking place in the northwest part of the country. This would be the fifth time that he would take part in the tour. He would be part of the team comprising of Nathan Haas and Kristian Sbaragli.

He has signed on and is part of the Dimension Data team as well. Being 32 years of age and hailing from Washington, his hair has been growing longer as his experience has become longer. He would be guiding Sbaragli in the sprint courses. He would also be setting up Haas to attack when the course moves to the mountain stages in the middle part of the race. There would be several climbers who would be part of the team and would pitch in when the race moves to the mountainous parts.

Farrar feels that the Vuelta course is not sprinter friendly. There would be several opportunities, but nine field sprints would not be part of this cycling course. However, he loves the kind of cycling course that is offered on this tour. He feels that it is one of his favorites out of the three grand tours that he has taken part in. As an experienced cyclist, he knows that every tour has its own special characteristics. This tour specializes in a laid back feel. This is a contrast as compared to Tour de France, which offers a competitive, challenging and stressful cycling course.
