#MyCyclingWeekend with Decathlon - The Vuelta begins!

New red-themed prizes for the Vuelta a Espana

Our favourite grand tour of the year, La Vuelta starts this weekend and Decathlon are helping us celebrate with brand new prizes for the duration of the race.

The Vuelta is the most laid-back of the three grand tours and it's a strange mix of riders that need to make something out of their season and riders that give you the impression that they'd rather be elsewhere.

It's a mix that creates a half-interested peloton which, when mixed with brutal finishing climbs, makes for plenty of breakaway days that keeps the race interesting.

To celebrate the leader's red jersey, Decathlon are putting up a red B'Twin 600ml bottle and matching red Triban 500 bottle cage.

That should help you stay hydrated as you tackle your very own Angrilu-style climbs!

To win, all you need to do is upload a pic from your weekend ride to Instagram and use #MyCyclingWeekend in the caption. While you're there, head to @DecathlonUK_Cycling and give them a follow.

Life is better offline - with bikes, coffee and friends. It’s good to chat! Buuuut life can also be pretty good online too. Which is why we’ve created an App (eeeek!! ) for members to chat, meet up and organise cool stuff! You can now message other members, organise rides and social events and there’s even a pretty sweet route database in there too. Buy/swap/sell also, to help alleviate you of all that heavy cash Link in bio for details (and in your emails today).

Son of a Marathon runner, Nephew of a National 24hr Champion, the racing genetics have completely passed him by. After joining the staff in 2016 as a reviewer, Liam quickly started writing feature articles and news pieces. After a little time living in Canada, where he spent most of his time eating poutine, Liam returned with the launch of DealClincher, taking over the Editor role at the start of 2018. At the weekend, Liam can be found racing on the road both in the UK and abroad, though he prefers the muddy fields of cyclocross. To date, his biggest race win is to the front of the cafe queue.
