Michael Woods may in there somewhere

The Vuelta a Espana and the Giro d'Italia are way behind the Tour de France in reputation. (And to some degree in organization too: yesterday the riders seemed to be constantly in danger of colliding with the motorcycle cameras.) On the other hand, steephill.tv vuelta has large amounts of highlights available online.

The Vuelta, which started last weekend, has not got TV distribution in Canada, far as I can tell.  But there are three Canadians in the Vuelta this year, and one of them, Michael Woods, currently stands eleventh overall. The other Canadians are the ironman Svein Tuft (at 178th) and Hugo Houle (78th).
