It was the ultimate 21st stage of the 2016 Vuelta and seeing as I was in Madrid, I wasn’t going to miss catching a glimpse of the race in this great city. I jumped off the train, up the stairs, and there it was right in front of me… the peloton speeding past on the Madrid circuit. It was a sight to behold and they were really going at high speed, which is a bit difficult to notice on TV.
After the race I was near the podium area and caught sight of Froome and also Chavez who is a really small guy. It was exhilerating, and I’m glad I went out to watch.
