Shallow Thoughts: Vuelta Stage 5
Not much to say about today’s stage.
- It was interesting to see a circuit race stage in a Grand Tour.
- I always admire the lone escapee. It has to be hell riding like hell all alone off the front, knowing that you’ll probably never make it.
- I kinda like that the usual sprinting suspects aren’t around. It lends a bit more mystery and suspense to the sprints. Even though John Degenkolb and his dimples has won both sprints so far, the run in and the trains are a bit crazier than normal. I like it mixed up!
And there you have it. Today’s stage in a nutshell. Not really.
