Alejandro will take part in the Vuelta

He will be back three years after he already won the race

“I was thinking about it already in the last stages of the Tour, but we preferred to wait and see how my body was to recover after those three weeks and the additional effort of London,” says Valverde. “After the Olympics, I took a couple of days off the bike and started training afterwards, soft rides to kick off and then some strength, and I found myself well. My goals in the Vuelta will be fighting for stage wins, since some finishes suit me well, and helping out Juanjo Cobo, who will be our team leader. I know most of the route, but I had no time to recon some of the new stages, because I chose to rest in the few days I had after the Games were over.”
