Looks like systems are returning to normal, and so too is the Vuelta. After a team time trial and some classics style racing, today looks more like sprinters' fare. Not assured -- last time the race went to Cordoba, Paolo Bettini won a puncheurs' affair. But if the heat isn't too brutal (Cordoba is the hottest place in Europe, and I don't mean Ibiza-hot), perhaps the fastmen can hold it together over some small climbs late in the stage. Should be entertaining as always. The Vuelta is off to a great start so far. Enjoy!
