La Vuelta – An International Mention for Our ‘Chain Breaker’ – Chimney Bank

Stage 12 of the highly prestigious Tour of Spain (known as La Vuelta a Espana – or usually just as the Vuelta – and second only to the Tour de France although in fact a tougher race than the TdF) finished with a short but very steep climb. (The final kilometre took the world’s best climbers racing flat out almost 5 minutes.)

Highlights are shown on ITV4 each evening and to illustrate the severity of the short final climb the commentators suggested there is an equivalent climb in Britain – our own Chimney Bank.

This programme is watched by huge numbers of cycling fans so perhaps we can expect to see more cyclists visiting to attempt our challenging climb. The Chain Breaker !

Anyone who wants to watch the exciting stage 12 can still catch it on ITV player: http://www.itv.com/itvplayer/video/?Filter=324154
