2016 Volta a Catalunya stage 2

Posted by on March 22, 2016

On a day when events in Brussels make me think that cycling is so trivial, I somehow also can’t help but feel that cycling is that much more essential. With this in mind, I present a photo gallery from Els Àngels, a category 1 climb just outside of Girona. The second stage of the Volta a Catalunya brought the peloton here en route to the finish line in Olot, some 70 kilometers away.

 

The breakaway: Boris Dron (Wanty-Groupe Gobert), Maxime Bouet (Etixx Quick Step), Thomas De Gendt (Lotto Soudal), and Kamil Gradek (Verva Activejet Pro Cycling).

Racing to catch the tail of the peloton, Tejay Van Garderen suffered a flat and teammate Darwin Atapuma was on hand to swap out a tire.
