Now that we've all got our breath back from the Olympic Track cycling....


The Vuelta A Espana – The third and final Grand Tour of the year.

If you are going for PTP GC, it is time to show if you are a genuine contender. For the rest of us, it’s a chance to gain the accolade of being a PTP Grand Tour champion.

The race starts with a Team Time Trial on Saturday 21st August at 4.22pm (BST) , so all GC and first stage picks in by 4pm Saturday please.

All other picks will follow the usual Noon cut-off rules. All usual PTP rules apply.

The start list and other useful information can be found here
