Yesterday, the 164 participants of La Vuelta cycled through Valle de Tena for a relatively short but very intense and maybe decisive 15th stage.
Gianluca Brambilla was the fastest in climbing to Formigal together with the current leader of the race Nairo Quintana. They both took part of a 14-rider breakaway that formed in the opening kilometres. At the end, Quintana put 2:37 into Froome that is still in second place, but got now less chances of winning the Vuelta a España.
The riders crossed Biescas and passed by our Hike Pyrenees office around 5pm, in the 90th of a 119 km itinerary that took them from Sabiñanigo to Formigal ski resort.
Some of our guests had the opportunity to enjoy the spectacle of this great event that came to the Valley. This morning the Vuelta left the Pyrenees and went more south. Maybe it will come back next year!
