With the return of the infamous Angliru and 'flat' stages that still feature monstrous climbs, the 2017 edition of the Vuelta is set to test like none other.
Chris Froome of Team Sky targets a back to back Tour de France and Vuelta win, a feat that we haven't seen in recent history. Set to retire after the Vuelta, we're looking to see if cycling legend Alberto Contador finishes his career with a bang.
Previous Vuelta victors Aru and Nibali are hot GC contenders too. Not to forget the Yates twins from Orica-Scott, along with their team mate Esteban Chaves who came very frustratingly close to success at the Vuelta last year.
Dare you watch the GCN kiss of death? Is the shark🦈 ready to pounce?
