La Vuelta (Spanish road bike race) is currently going through the Basque Country. On Friday it leaves Bilbao and heads east. The last 60 kilometres or so take in Ramales, Soba, Arredondo, Alisas, Entrambasaguas, Riano, Matienzo, Riva, Bustablado and finishing on the ‘rampas inhumanas’ (as the Spanish refer to it) Los Machucos.
The coverage from the camera bikes and helecopters should give a decent view of the Matienzo area, Asón Gorge and the valleys under which many of the areas caves run.
The whole race is on Eurosport from 1130, highlights (which should have most of the Matienzo area on) are available on itv4, 7pm Friday. There’s also itv4 catch up on the web after the broadcast.
