So again the Vuelta a España is providing cycling fans with some of the best racing of the year. Steep climbs, multiple attacks, Contador flying again, no flat stages and every rider trying to achieve something this year, it leads to some very exciting racing. Also because it’s not quite as big as the Tour de France it’s very possible to get “up close” on the VIP experiences!
So we thought we’d share with you what our clients have been enjoying this week on a trip of a lifetime.
Surprise ride with Valverde!
His right knee is still taped up but great to see him back on the bike!
Coffee stop with Valverde
Great view of the Sky train
Cross the finish-line Experience
We have accreditation to do a ‘cross the finish line’ VIP experience. Our guests will ride the final 50km section of the stage to cross the finish line. You will then be invited on to the podium, followed by a backstage tour. Finally we have a VIP viewing area (with refreshments) to await the arrival of the Pro racers and to see the podium presentations.
Experience what it’s like to get cheering over the finish line by the awaiting fans.
Fantastic podium experience
Enjoy a break while we wait for the Pros
Uninterrupted view of the finish straight.
Great seeing Contador going full gas
Great view of the Podium Presentation
To have the opportunity to meet Alejandro Valverde and join him on a training ride was an unforgettable experience. This will be the highlight of my cycling holiday trips, only made possible due to Claudio's acquaintances with the riders in the area.
