Alberto Contador has managed to become the overall leader in the Vuelta a Andalucia Ruta del Sol race even before 24 hour hours after the race started. For the 32 years old Spanish professional cyclist, this race is the first race of the 2015 season. Alberto Contador is riding Vuelta a Andalucia for the first time in his professional cycling career.
The British professional cyclist Chris Froome who is one of the biggest rivals of Alberto Contador is eight seconds behind the Spanish rider. Contador is not at all willing to make much of his spectacular start of his first race of this season.
Contador said that the race had only just begun and there’s still a long way to go. Contador regards being the leader as nothing more than a symbolic thing. Contador became the recipient of the red jersey. The red jersey is only given to the leader of the race. The Spanish rider jokingly said that maybe the colour red is a lucky charm for him. The red jersey is also awarded to the leader of Vuelta a Espana race. (more…)
