Vueltas y revueltas | 2021 Vuelta a España preview

Season 9, Episode 135,  Aug 12, 08:00 AM

In this episode Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe look ahead to the third and final grand tour of the season, the Vuelta a España.

Will it be another showdown between the two newly-crowned Olympic champions Primoz Roglic and Richard Carapaz or will Egan Bernal get the Ineos Grenadiers leadership role and aim to add the Vuelta to the Giro title he won earlier this season. Which teams are in the grand tour last chance saloon and who can complete the grand slam? And what does Vueltas y revueltas mean?

We also discuss a busy week in the transfer market for UAE-Team Emirates and Bora-Hansgrohe as they collect riders like Panini stickers.
