A late bloomer- The Tom Danielson diary
Tom Danielson's top 10 in last year's Vuelta a Espana provided Discovery with enough evidence to nominate him as their sole Vuelta leader.
Danielson is a relative late-comer to the sport and is still learning his trade. He will be detailing his progress in this special diary for Cyclingnews during the race.
September 16 - Looking towards home
Hi there, Cyclingnews readers,
Well, the Vuelta is just about done now. I rode hard today in order to protect my sixth place overall and that worked out fine, even though Samuel Sanchez (Euskaltel-Euskadi) did a very good time.
Looking back, it has been a difficult Vuelta for me, so to come back from my earlier disappointments and win that stage was an amazing experience. Bouncing back from such a low meant a lot. My season is over tomorrow so it is nearly time for a break. My wife is here now, so it is great to be with her.
My plan is to go home, go to Interbike and, of course, to recover. I also have a fundraiser back in Durango for my scholarship. It's called the Durango Fall Blaze Bicycle Tour and it will take place on Saturday, September 30. I'm looking forward to that!
