I love the Vuelta. Today's brutal Ferna climb to Mirador de Ezaro (1.8km, 30% steepest climb in any Grand Tour)  was exciting to watch. Don't think the riders would agreed except for stage winner Alexandre Geniez and second place finisher Ruben Fernandez (now the new leader).  And, the good thing... there's nine more summit finishes to go!
