German cyclist Jens Voigt targets Hour Record in bid to bring credibility to discipline
Cycling's Chuck Norris, 43, aims to end his professional career on a high on Thursday evening. Learn more.
Merckx: Voigt can beat the hour record
Eddy Merckx’s hour record of 49.431 kilometres, set in Mexico in 1972, has been the standard bearer for the event ever since the UCI decided to restrict the equipment available in 2000. Today (Thursday) Jens Voigt, who turned 43 on Wednesday, will become the first rider to tackle the hour since the rules were relaxed earlier this year.
Voigt will not be aiming for Merckx’s distance, but the 49.700km set by Ondřej Sosenka in 2005. Merckx believes that the recently retired German can better the Czechoslovakian rider. Learn more.
"Nit de l'Art" 2014
La Nit de l'Art is Mallorca's Mediterranean version of the "Nuit Blanche" concept, which many cities across the world celebrate.
In Mallorca, art galleries and museums join together to celebrate the start of the arts and culture season by transforming the city's historic quarter into a treasure trove for art lovers during a single night on the third Thursday of September.
The first edition of the Nit de l'Art took place in 1997 as an informal agreement between what were originally a handful of art galleries and a small group of collectors and enthusiasts.
Since then, it has been growing steadily and is widely regarded as one of the highlights of the social calendar with tens of thousands of visitors spilling onto the pedestrian streets and historic alleyways to discover some of the most exciting exhibitions, performances, video-installations and urban interventions.

"La Vuelta": Malori takes the last stage, Contador claims one more Grand Tour.
"La Vuelta" Stage 21: Santiago de Compostela - Final del camino.
Madrid passes the baton to the Galician capital. The Vuelta a España will come to an end in Santiago de Compostela with an individual time-trial spanning over 10 kilometres, after which we will come to know the name of the winner of the 2014 edition. It will be a short, fast stage that will make little difference to the general classification. Obradorio plaza will be the stage where the grand finale will play out before the world and the outcome of a race that continues to preserve its very own seal of identity will be revealed. Stage 21.
"La Vuelta" Stage 20: Santo Estevo de Ribas de Sil - Puerto de Ancares.
Santo Estevo de Ribas de Sil will be the starting point of the second-last stage of the Vuelta a España. The peloton will head towards the Puerto de Ancares, where the finish line is located, through an unprecedented area in what will be a tough and demanding day. The route features two 3rd category climbs, one 2nd category climb, one 1st category climb and one special-category climb. Just one day from ending this three-week race, the tiniest detail could make a world of difference to the general classification. Stage 20.
"La Vuelta" Stage 19: Salvaterra do Miño - Cangas do Morrazo.
Stage 19 will be a mid-mountain stage and the third-last day of the Vuelta. The peloton will leave from Salvaterra Do Miño and arrive at Cangas do Morrazo. Riders will face two 2nd category climbs, the last of which is located just 19 kilometres from the finish line and will be the final decider as only the strongest riders will have a chance to fight for the stage victory. Stage 19.
"La Vuelta" Stage 18: A Estrada - Monte Castrove.
The departure will be in A Estrada and the arrival in the Monte Castrove. It is expected to be a tough and dangerous day as the arrival will take place at high altitude. The peloton will have to pass Monte Castrove, a 2nd category climb, on two occasions. This will involve a 5-kilometre climb with slopes featuring inclinations of 12%. The almost three weeks of competition may start to take their toll in a stage that marks the beginning of the end of this edition of the Vuelta. Stage 18.
"La Vuelta" Stage 17: Ortigueira - A Coruña.
The Vuelta a España returns to Galicia, specifically to the province of A Coruña. The departure of this 17th stage will take place from Ortigueira and the riders will once again have an opportunity to sprint. The arrival at A Coruña will be the final chance for sprinters to obtain a partial victory in this edition of the Vuelta a España. Stage 17.
Exclusive online prices!
Have a look of our exclusive online prices in racing bikes! A great option to enjoy Palma de Mallorca and "Serra de Tramuntana". Learn more.
"La Vuelta" Stage 16: San Martín del Rey Aurelio - La Farrapona.
This is the crowning stage of the 2014 Vuelta. It will be a short stage, only 158.8 kilometres long, with everything such a stage usually entails for the riders. The itinerary includes five 1st category mountain passes, including the final climb up the demanding Farrapona summit. It will be a day full of nerves in which the big favourites of the general classification will try to make one last play for the final victory of the 2014 edition. Stage 16.
"La Vuelta" Stage 15: Oviedo - Lagos de Covadonga.
The ever-spectacular arrival at the Lakes of Covadonga returns to the Vuelta a España in the 15th stage. The beginning of the stage will take place along the coastline and will be favourable for break-aways. In order to access the final climb towards the Lakes of Covadonga, the peloton must first face the Torno summit. Winning this stage always has a particularly special meaning and value. Stage 15.
"La Vuelta" Stage 14: Santander - La Camperona.
Stage 14 has another unprecedented finish. The peloton will arrive at the Camperona summit, after having endured the Collada de la Hoz, the setting for one of Alberto Contador's greatest feats. The Pinto-born cyclist made a play for victory on the way to Fuente Dé and managed to knock Joaquim Rodríguez off the first position in the general classification back in 2012. The riders will also pass San Glorio, a 1st category climb, before facing the final climb up to the Camperona summit. The last 3 kilometres feature slopes with inclinations up to 24%. Stage 14.
"La Vuelta" Stage 13: Belorado - Obregón.
The Vuelta a España arrives in Cantabria and, more specifically, in Cabárceno Natural Park. The final part of the stage features a winding route with three mountain passes and the end is a climb, though not a very steep one. It will be a favourable day for break-aways. The last stages are fast approaching and the favourites will have to be very careful not to lose their spots in the general classification. Stage 13.
"La Vuelta" Stage 12: Logroño - Logroño.
This circuit will both depart and arrive in the city of Logroño. It will be another day in which, barring surprises, the peloton will fight for victory through a mass sprint. The city of Logroño already hosted a similar stage two years ago, in the 2012 Vuelta. The teams with sprinters will attempt to control any break-aways in order to achieve victory. Stage 12.
"La Vuelta" Stage 11: Pamplona - Santuario de San Miguel de Aralar.
The Vuelta returns to the Autonomous Community of Navarra with an unprecedented stage. It will be a complicated day as it follows a time-trial stage. The first part will be flat but the second part will be completely different. Before facing the final kilometres, the peloton will have to endure a 2nd category climb, then ride up to the finish line positioned on the summit of San Miguel de Aralar. This will be tough and demanding as the 8 final kilometres feature slopes with inclinations of up to 13%. Stage 11.
"La Vuelta" Stage 10: Real Monasterio de Veruela - Borja.
The Vuelta returns to the province of Zaragoza. This stage, with a departure from Monasterio de Veruela and the finish line in Borja, consists of individual time-trials that will no-doubt be marked by the strongest riders, although the second part will be much more technical. Riders will have to cover 34.5 kilometres and face a 3rd category climb. The timed race will be similar to that which took place in Tarazona last year, where Fabian Cancellara obtained the final victory. Stage 10.

"La Vuelta" Stage 9: Carboneras de Guadazaón - Aramón Valdelinares.
195 riders took the start of stage 9 in direction to the ski resort of Aramon Valdelinares. 31 competitors formed a breakaway as soon as the race was flagged off: Anacona and Cunego (Lampre-Merida), Bouet and Nocentini (Ag2R-La Mondiale), Lutsenko (Astana), Martens (Belkin), Nerz and D. Wyss (BMC), Bilbao and Mas (Caja Rural), Coppel and Zingle (Cofidis), Zingle, Berhane and Cousin (Europcar), Hesjedal and Van Summeren (Garmin-Sharp), Lang (IAM), Vorganov (Katusha), Hansen (Lotto-Belisol), Teklehaimanot and Thomson (MTN-Qhubeka), J. Moreno (Movistar), Boonen and Verona (Omega Pharma-Quick Step), Bewley (Orica-Greenedge), Cataldo (Team Sky), Arndt (Giant-Shimano), Arredondo, Jungels and Felline (Trek Factory).
They covered 47km in the first hour and reached a maximum advantage of 8.15 at km 111. While Movistar set a higher pace at the head of the peloton, Vansummeren also raised the rhythm in the breakaway to favor an attack by Hesjedal. But Anacona, Jungels and J. Moreno were the attackers in the ascent to Alto de San Rafael with 21 km to go. Under the pouring rain, Team Sky stretched the peloton to reduce the gap to 4.30 at the bottom of the final climb.
Also a virtual race leader for most of the race, Anacona attacked again with 6km to go and soloed to victory but he missed the red jersey by nine seconds as Contador countered Team Sky 2.2km before the finish line. Froome lost contact but Rodriguez and Quintana bridged the gap onto Contador.
Quintana is the new race leader while six riders are within thirty seconds on GC with an individual time trial to be contested on Tuesday after a rest day at Zaragoza. Stage 9.
"La Vuelta" Stage 8: Baeza - Albacete.
This is a completely flat stage as La Vuelta leaves Andalucía and heads to Castilla la Mancha. The day's route will be more than 200 kilometres long and will favour a mass sprint towards the finish line located in Albacete. Every time the Vuelta goes to Albacete, the wind must be taken into account, as it is a very common occurrence in that part of Spain. Stage 8.
"La Vuelta" Stage 7: Alhendín - Alcaudete.
Stage 7 has both an unprecedented departure and arrival in this year's Vuelta as Alhendin and Alcaudete set the itinerary for the day's racing. The final part of the route always peaks upwards and the 5 final kilometres, though not as slanted, have an average inclination of 4%. This is an ideal day for the more adventurous riders to seek glory through a partial victory. Stage 7.
"La Vuelta" Stage 6: Benalmádena - La Zubia.
The Vuelta leaves the province of Malaga with a departure from Benalmádena and heads towards the province of Granada. The unprecedented finish line at La Zubia is part of a hill stage with a high altitude finish. It will be the first great opportunity for climbers to make a difference in the general classification. The last climb is not a long one but has slopes with inclinations of up to 13%. Stage 6.
"La Vuelta" Stage 5: Priego de Córdoba - Ronda.
The group will depart from Priego de Córdoba and arrive at the locality of Ronda, in Malaga, 182.3 kilometres later. The first part of the stage will be flat, as opposed to the rest of the stage that will be decidedly winding and nervous. The final kilometres feature a 3rd category climb where the bravest riders may once again make a play for victory in the Vuelta's 5th day. The difficulty of the final stretch will prevent a mass sprint to the finish line in Ronda. Stage 5.
"La Vuelta" Stage 4: Mairena del Alcor - Córdoba.
The stage departure will be in Mairena del Alcor and the finish line in Córdoba. It will be a flat stage for the first 120 kilometres, after which it will have the peloton climbing two mountains that, although not excessively difficult, may well break the group up and avoid a mass sprint towards the city of Córdoba. The stage may be decided within a small peloton, although it will also be favourable for the brave who seek success by breaking away. Stage 4.
"La Vuelta" Stage 3: Cádiz - Arcos de la Frontera.
This will be the third stage to take place in the Cadiz province. The beautiful capital of Cadiz will set the scene for the departure of the 188-kilometre route that will take the peloton to the locality of Arcos de la Frontera. It is flat stage until kilometre 55 where hills will appear. The peloton will face three 3rd category climbs before the final stretch towards Arcos. The 2 final kilometres, already in the locality of Arcos de la Frontera, will feature a climb that will prevent the entire group from arriving together. Learn more about Stage 3.
"La Vuelta" Stage 2: Algeciras - San Fernando.
Stage 2 is the first linear stage of the 2014 Vuelta. With its departure in Algeciras and its arrival in San Fernando, it is a flat stage with a 3rd category climb in the first part of the itinerary. It will be a nervous day in which the wind may take centre stage during the final kilometres. It is expected to be a favourable day for sprinters. Learn more about Stage 2.
Beginning of "La Vuelta" España 2014 in Jerez de la Frontera.
It will commence with a team time-trial in Jerez de la Frontera. The teams will cover 12.6 kilometres in order to find out the name of this edition's very first leader. The stage consists of a very Andalusian, urban itinerary, which will have cyclists riding past some of the most emblematic locations in Cadiz, the Vuelta's departure point. It will be a short, mainly technical, circuit that will not mark many differences among the teams. "La Vuelta" Official Site
