Philippa York analysis: Jumbo-Visma have to learn from Vuelta a España success



If there’s one thing you can be sure of at the Vuelta a España, it is that there will always be some controversy of sorts. You could say the same of the other Grand Tours but the roads of Spain have a knack for producing it on a regular basis. Anyone who knows about my career knows what I’m talking about.

Looking back to the start of proceedings in this year’s race the bad weather was blamed for the race ending in the dark but then you realise that the race was scheduled in the early evening, when it was due to go dark. The stage was also held on greasy Barcelona city centre roads, with teams forced to take huge risks to avoid losing time to their GC rivals. So it wasn’t just one thing, it was a combination of all those elements.
