Kemps getting through his first Vuelta - OK

This year’s Vuelta is the debut Grand Tour for Astana’s young Australian rider, Aaron Kemps. The first year pro will have his 23rd birthday on Sunday and said yesterday that he is trying to recover before then in the hope of doing something on stage 15.

“I am starting to get tired, as you do. I will just try to get today in the best shape possible, and then I will have a sort of a rest day tomorrow in the time trial. I will just take it easy as possible there, but then hopefully I can have a go on stage 15.
