Coming out of the castle at Montjuic in Barcelona we heard the unmistakable rumble of tyres and whizz of freehubs – bunch of roadies taking up the entire road I thought, but no, turned out we’d stumbled on the seventh and last stage of the Volta a Catalunya!
The riders do eight laps of the Alto de Montjuic at the end of the 136km stage, so we saw them a few times.
No idea of who’s who, but I think I caught Quintana (the overall winner) at IMG_2350.
Pics here. Taken with a titchy holiday camera rather than my bigger dadcam, but OK.
Race info here if you’re interested.
