The annual "Running of the Bulls" in Pamplona photo credit: wikipedia

August 14 update: As the last few years, this year's Vuelta a Espana starts with an evening team time trial. This year's course in Pamplona is slightly longer than previous years at 16.2 km. As usual, there will be the challenge of doing an urban team trial in an old city and there will be plenty of roundabouts on this course.

Pamplona is perhaps most famous for the festival of San Fermín which features the Running of the Bulls. — Steve
