Greetings from sunny Spain! It is nice and warm here, really warm! It was 35°C yesterday and about 30°C again today, just perfect for this time of year.

We arrived Wednesday evening. Thursday all the riders went out for a training ride, nothing specific, just riding their bikes. They did a few climbs before returning to the hotel for massages and visits to the osteopath. This is a good time to take care of those little problems, before they become big ones.

Today [Friday] they went out with their time trial bikes for two and a half hours. We did a little work on their positions on the bike, who will ride behind who, stuff like that. It was mainly to get a feel for the whole thing and for the bikes and the positioning. Then they changed over to the regular road bikes to spin their legs out.

Tonight is the team presentation, and we are the very last. We go on at 8PM. Then it will be back to the hotel for a late dinner. Tomorrow is the day, the opening day of the Vuelta!
