The main peloton headed by a cyclist from the Radio Shack team followed by a couple of boys from the Katusha team and one of the Sky boys

The tail end charlies just coasting along behind the rest.
image What surprised us was the number of support vehicles that preceded and followed the race itself.

The Guardia Civil were out in force checking the route over and over again before the race arrived.

Then of course there were the race officials, the press, medics and a long train of team cars with spare bikes, wheels etc.

This meant that the entourage took a lot longer to pass through than the cyclists.
