Roberto Heras


Heras on Angliru. He went face-to-face with Casero on what is probably the hardest climb in the world, and walked away with the Vuelta in his pocket. And to think, he and Armstrong will be on the same team next season!

In the Tour of Spain came Heras's great overall victory and the prominent showing of Rubiera/Escartin/Sevilla both on GC and in those characteristic mountain attacks. The fact they won the team competition in both tours shows what a great performance they put in.
