Vuelta a Espana second stage

We went to see the second stage of the Vuelta in Assen yesterday. The 202 km stage started in the city and passed through twice more on the way to the finish in Emmen.

There are many other videos on youtube, including a nice bit on the pave further south, some aerial shots including racing through Assen and the last few km and finish (just as we saw it on the local TV, but we had Dutch commentary).

It's been a pleasure watching the Vuelta and looking at the scenery, roadways, cycling paths, and many people lining the route.

American commentators on Universal Sports make mention of how normal people ride bikes and how cycling is part of the culture.

The Netherlands is getting very good publicity.
