Vuelta A España 2015: Top 10 Riders To Watch

The 2015 Tour of Spain has one of the best fields of the year. The Tour de France podium of Chris Froome, Nairo Quintana and Alejandro Valverde will all be there and will all be hungry for victory.

The 2015 Vuelta a España has one of the strongest start lists that we've seen. Narrowing this list down to ten star riders was incredibly difficult and the riders that we've left off – Mikel Landa, Geraint Thomas – could well make the overall podium.

With the likes of Chris Froome, Joaquim Rodriguez, Alejandro Valverde and Nairo Quintana all starting it's going to be an incredibly closely-fought affair. Add in the brutal course and, well, the Vuelta may well be the best Grand Tour of the year.

How To Descend Like A Pro

Learn how to descend like a pro cyclist with these tips!

Descending is one of the best bits of road cycling. It's where your skills, fitness and road awareness combine and there's nothing quite like the rush of nailing a hairpin or tucking and dropping like a stone.

As we're all descending on the open road, safety is paramount. So, adopt the techniques, work on your braking, work on your cornering, but stay to your side of the road, don't cut corners and don't push it harder than you – or the riders around you – can go.

No USA Pro Challenge for Horner's Airgas-Safeway Team

Israeli Cycling Academy in Colorado event
The jerseys: Jens Voigt, Clement Chevrier, Ben Jacques-Maynes, Tejay van Garderen,and Kiel Reijnen

The USA Pro Challenge will depart on August 17 without the Airgas-Safeway team of Chris Horner. The organisers announced the 16 teams set to compete in the 2015 edition, including just four WorldTour teams - BMC, Trek, Tinkoff-Saxo and Cannondale-Garmin, four Pro Continental teams and eight Continental squads, one of which is the Cycling Academy from Israel - a team supported by Peter Sagan.

The Pro Continental teams include Novo Nordisk and UnitedHealthcare from the US, the Australian Drapac Pro team, while Caja Rural-Seguros RGA will make their debut in the race.

Continental squads include Optum p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies, Team SmartStop, Hincapie, Jamis-Hagens Berman, Jelly Belly p/b Maxxis and Axeon from the US, Team Budget Forklifts (Australia) and Cycling Academy, the first-ever professional team licensed from Israel.

Defending champion Tejay van Garderen will not be back with the BMC team, he has chosen to race the Vuelta a España instead, but the squad will be well-represented by Rohan Dennis, who wore the first maillot jaune in the Tour de France this year, and Damiano Caruso.

The Trek Factory Racing team comes with US national champion Matthew Busche and Haimar Zubeldia as GC contenders, while Tinkoff-Saxo will support Roman Kreuziger in the event.
The Cannondale-Garmin team will be missing last year's runner-up Tom Danielson, who recently tested positive for synthetic testosterone. The Denver-based team will instead rely on Italian Davide Formolo, who won a stage in the Giro d'Italia this year, promising newcomer Ruben Zepuntke and Colombian climber Janier Acevedo.

It will be the first time the race has departed with none of the podium finishers of the previous year. Sergei Tvetcov, who was third last year, now races for Androni Giocattoli, which was suspended for the month of August after having two doping positives.

“The USA Pro Challenge has always been a proving ground for rising young talent and this year will be no different,” Hunter said. “We are definitely seeing a changing of the guards in the international level cycling and it’s exhilarating to see it first hand on the roads of Colorado.”
