Miguel Indurain was spotted at the start area.
Here's Indurain (right) with Franco Ballerini. Ballerini is at the Vuelta to check out the Italian riders for selection to the World's team. Note that Ballerini, the Italian, has the cool upturned collar and longer sideburns. We can't see if his wristwatch is bigger than Indurain's. Probably is. Ballerini has followed the Italian maxim: fare una bella figura.
In the Lampre motorhome before the start. Damiano Cunego has the earphone (2nd from left) and Alessandro Ballan is standing at the sink.
Alejandro Valverde at the sign-in. Ooh, Pinarello Dogma with Campy Bora wheels. Me want bike.
Cadel Evans at the start line, and he doesn't look the slightest bit grumpy.
Tyler Farrar knows he's got the sprint nailed.
Farrar gets his first Grand Tour stage victory.
