The Andalucía Bike Race chronicles – Chapter 5

After yesterday's stage had been modified due to the bad weather, conditions worsened further and today's stage was cancelled altogether due to the snow and high winds in the mountains.  Along with everyone else we were pretty disappointed with the news but by all accounts it was the right decision.

Later in the day after the rain and snow
We've just learned that the final stage tomorrow will be modified as further snow is forecast tonight.  The overall distance and time remain similar but the format will resort to that of a marathon rather than the scheduled time-trial so we've put our aerobars back in our bags for another day.

Busy day at the office
On the plus side the impromptu day off has given us chance to purchase supplies to get my shoe to hold together for one final day.  These boots weren't made for walking...
