Veteran cyclist Tyler Farrar has expressed his opinion about the vuelta a espana tour route, the American has said that the tendency of the route in recent times to move in a more epic and difficult direction is not limited to Spain alone.
Farrar who is currently participating at his 15th grand tour event at this year’s vuelta a espana is in amazing shape physically.
Referring to the Spanish race as one of the most difficult grand tour he has participated in, he said in a statement that the vuelta will be rightfully regarded as the toughest grand tour competition ever. He further explained that the terrain was not just difficult but came with epic features and would no doubt be one of his most daunting competitions.
Being quite the expert with the wheels, Farrar has participated and completed five Gior d’Italia, Tour de france and the vuelta de espania. However, his years of experience have given him much insight on the difficulties that such a track holds in store. Having participated in several races, he observed that with each coming year, organisers find more ways to make the terrain even more complicated for cyclists.
