Euskaltel duo scout Vuelta climbs

Mikel Nieve and Igor Antón are both targeting the Vuelta a España later this season, and the featherweight duo are leaving nothing to chance as they aim to go even better than last year.

The duo memorably grabbed three mountain-top stage-wins between them, and, just like last year, they'll be well prepared for what's to come in late August. Yesterday, the two climbers, accompanied by DS Josu Larrazabal, did the last 70 kilometres of stage four that ends atop the Sierra Nevada, writes El Correo. Inside those last 70 clicks were also the cat. 3 climb of Blancares, and in total they spent approximately three hours on the road. They both rode in Almería this past Sunday, and next up for the duo is the Vuelta a Murcia on Friday.
