We're into the final week of the Vuelta and the peloton has been drastically reduced in size on account of the cold, the mountains and the speed of the race.
After stints with the Australian Institute of Sport as a full scholarship holder, and time spent with HTC-Highroad as a stagiare, Dempster now rides for Team NetApp-Endura and will be going into the Vuelta ready for his first Grand Tour.
The path to the Vuelta has been a long one for the rider who has never given up hope of reaching the top. Having raced with Drapac Cycling, Southaustralia.com-AIS, Rapha Condor Sharp, Endura, various Australian National Teams and now NetApp-Endura, Dempster has worldy experience and brings a unique insight into the professional cycling world.
The 25-year-old from Bendigo, Victoria, Australia, will be bringing you the inside line on the hectic bunch sprints and the gruelling mountain top finishes over the next three weeks.
