    the events and stages of the Vuelta and how many are so fed up with the drug stories that they have decided to give racing a miss for a while!!!!

    Paulus Started young, and still going.

    Although I am fed up with the stories and antics of the druggies, I am following the Vuelta on Eurosport, although not with the same enthusiasm as in the past.

    I've lost my Eurosport access, so I am only following it on cyclingnews and your reports! Thanks.

    Not much interest in it for me really, no GB riders, too many swarthy Spanish types.

    All it did was make me wonder why I bothered subscribing to's premium channel, when they go and set a whole new one up for the Vuelta.

    I'm still following the race on Eurosport, but I'm fast-forwarding until 20km or 15km from the end, just to see the lead-outs and the sprints. Roll on more mountains!

    The drug stories have not put me off, but the racing (and the countryside) is a little (just a litttle, mind) dull.

    I will give the Tour of Poland a miss this year, but I can't wait for the World Championships!
  10. i'm still following cycling. love it.

    I don't seem to be paying much attention to the Vuelta this year as I did the other two grand tours - just look at cyclingnews for the report in the evening, and even that isn't as good as for the Giro and Tour.

    I like to sit back with a glass of Rioja or Magno cognac, or a cold bottle of Estrella, with some improvised tapas (cheese sandwich) and watch the race go by on the box.
    I prefer the Giro d'Italia and Tour de France, from a 'nature experience point of view', but there's so little cycling available on TV, so I'm happy to watch anything.
