Here is a question I have been teasing myself with.

Which is the best three week grand tour?

I blogged on here about the Giro being so magnificent back in June /content/blog/18119-memories-2010-giro but so far the Tour has been as exciting.

The Vuelta never seems to match the racing (despite having the Angliru) but has a lovely end of season/summer ambience.

What do you reckon?

Tour for history/scenery/atmosphere. Giro for 'stunt' climbs/fans/racing drama. Vuelta not in the same league.

The vuelta always seems a bit like that end-of-the-season football game where all the supporters turn up in fancy dress and the action is a bit stifled. or is that just me?

lots of big names say they're coming this year. all of the saxo bank heavy hitters, cav too. plus a few dropped out of the tour with the vuelta in their sights, pozzatto for instance.

anyway it'll be more fun now NEW AND IMPROVED fantasy vuelta is coming your way...
