This year’s La Vuelta a España, Spain’s premier cycling competition, is well underway and today’s tenth stage will see many of the sport’s top-tier athletes race through the local area.

British cycling legend and four-time Tour de France winner Chris Froome currently leads and is hoping to become the first man to achieve a Tour-Vuelta double in 39 years.

Fingers crossed the weather holds out for both cyclists and spectators!
