Borut Bozic. Say that fast 10 times and see what happens.
The Slovenian sprinter for the Dutch Vacansoleil team got the jump on the rest of the fast men, beating Tyler Farrar (Garmin) and Daniele Bennati (Liquigas) to the finish in Xàtiva.
A stage win in the bag, Borut can consider himself on vacation despite the hilly stages next week. Team sponsor Vacansoleil rents RV’s and mobile homes for camping in 16 countries throughout Europe. So we’re sure he can find a nice scenic spot to kick back and relax.
According to the press skit, all rental accommodations include a set of garden furniture and a parasol. TS sees Bozic holding a glass of rioja in one hand and a fishing pole in the other. He’s been one of the most combative riders, now he’s the most chill.
The Vacansoleil rider clearly enjoyed his day in the soleil. He foiled the best laid plans of Columbia and Garmin. Nothing like a grand tour stage win to give you that wide vacation grin. Tyler Farrar on the other hand must be wondering what’s wrong with his fast-twitch fibers. Is he wearing too much argyle — or not enough?
It was a sunny, picture postcard day in the Vuelta, a perfect day to go on vacation, especially if you’re Borut Bozic.
