Six riders to follow on Strava at the 2014 Vuelta a Espana

Who to watch on Strava during the Vuelta a Espana

Rigoberto Uran (Omega Pharma-QuickStep)

Rigoberto Uran will lead Omega Pharma-QuickStep at the Vuelta a Espana and the Colombian is one of two of the team’s nine-rider roster to feature on Strava.

Uran left Team Sky at the end of the 2013 season in search of Grand Tour leadership and rewarded his new employers with a second-place finish behind compatriot Nairo Quintana (Movistar) at the Giro d’Italia.

Now, having had a prolonged break from racing which only saw Uran return at the Tour de l’Ain last week, the 27-year-old goes into the Vuelta looking to go one better and stand on the top step of the podium.

Uran is best described as an occasional Strava user, rather than a dyed-in-the-wool addict, but you can find his profile here, and his team-mate, Carlos Verona, has already uploaded a pre-Vuelta team training ride from Jerez, which will host Saturday’s opening stage.
