La Vuelta 2021 Stage 1 Highlights | First Red Jersey Up For Grabs!

The Vuelta a España kicked off with a TT stage in Burgos, a perfect stage for the likes of Primoz Roglic and Jan Tratnik to battle it out for the red jersey. A short TT of 7.1km, the route started inside the famous Cathedral of Saint Mary of Burgos before approaching two climbs, one at 5% and the other at 7.1% for just over a kilometer. Packing quite the punch on the first day of the Grand Tour - the race remains flat for the descent back towards the Cathedral where the winner of stage 1 of the The Vuelta a España will be decided.

The most calm race commentator in the history of commentating sports. It’s like someone reading a story.

Calmest recap ever. This should be the alt version going forward, for people watching in bed
Jumbo Visma seems to have set out to send a clear message.
Kuss went out hard, he wanted those 3 mountain points.

What a Start for Olympic Champion....I wish Roglic wins Vuelta ❤👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
I run a 220mm disc on my TT bike. You just never know when you might be riding thru mud. Better safe than sorry.

I see some teams still cant afford the latest in brake tech aka disc brakes. Maybe we can do a gofund me to make the racing more equal?
Roglic looks glorious in that gold helmet.

Roglic tends to have a bad day in the mountains during the grand tours. So it’s always touch and go for him . Just my opinion.

"On course to make it 3". For goodness sake..........after 7km? You really should develop a sense of perspective.
