The Tour of Spain cycle race, 'La Vuelta de España, is one of the big three in professional cycling along with the Italian Giro, and the daddy of them all, the Tour de France. It is a three week stage race that travels around the baking countryside of the a Spanish summer. These races usually start with an individual time trial, each rider racing on a closed circuit against the clock. This year, excitingly, that race takes place in central Malaga, starting at the Pompidou Centre. If you haven't seen the enormous colourful circus that is a cycling grand tour, then you should, there's nothing quite like it. In Malaga, there will be fan zones and events, exhibitions and promotions, it will be a carnival of cycling, and equally fun for the cycling obsessed as much as the curious and uninitiated.
