Bike Trainer | Top Cycling Teams Racing In Vuelta a España
The 70th edition of the prestigious grand tour Vuelta a Espana begins on August 22nd and lasts for 23 days. The UCI pro teams train effectively on bike trainer because they have to race for 21 days with 2 rest days in between. In the three week long grueling race, the riders will be tested on their biking skills as well as recovery skills. Mountain finishes are the highlights of Vuelta a Espana and in 2015, the riders have to complete all the nine mountain top finishes in the first two weeks. The final week features a long time trial on stage 17 in Burgos.
