Del mar a la montaña, así comienza la Vuelta 2013

Por fin hoy ha terminado la espera y hemos asistido a la primera etapa de la Vuelta a España 2013 con una contrarreloj por equipos de 27 kilómetros. La salida ha sido ante todo espectacular, desde una batea en el interior del mar (un vivero flotante donde hacen crecer a los mejillones) en la ría de Arousa,  con final en la localidad de Sansenxo.

Hemos visto a los corredores salir en equipo desde la línea del mar, comenzando esta aventura que es la Vuelta, que contará con 21 etapas, con un recorrido total de 3.320 kilómetros aproximadamente. Y es curioso porque el mar es lo que menos van a ver estos ciclistas que van a encontrar un total de 11 finales en alto, como en las últimas ediciones, con una Vuelta diseñada para ser atractiva, pensada para los escaladores y para que todos disfrutemos del mejor espectáculo. Es en las alturas donde se van a jugar el maillot rojo los aspirantes de los 22 equipos que hoy han cruzado la línea de salida en Vilanova de Arousa.  Por delante, la emoción de uno de los deportes más bonitos y duros que existen.

La organización ha buscado un año más la originalidad y la sorpresa para la primera etapa de la Vuelta. La empresa Servicio del Automatismo y el Metal ha tardado un mes en construir esta estructura sobre la batea utilizando vigas y puntones madera, pilares de hierro y suelo de cristal. Es algo único, jamás se había hecho algo parecido para un evento deportivo.

En la vuelta de reconocimiento previa a la carrera muchos corredores han aprovechado el momento para hacerse fotografías, como Boasson Hagen del Sky, que ha utilizado su teléfono móvil para tomar una foto de sus pies y las ruedas de la bicicleta en la plataforma transparente. Una forma de inmortalizar posiblemente la que sea su primera vez “rodando sobre el mar”. Otros llegaban sobre la bici sin dejar de mirar el suelo, preguntando si era seguro “el invento este”. Y es que lo de ver el agua debajo de la bicicleta no es lo habitual…

Terminadas las vueltas de reconocimientos y el calentamiento, los equipos embarcaban en catamaranes preparados para la ocasión que desde una zona muy cercana les han llevado hasta la batea para tomar la salida. Y así ha sido como una plataforma mejillonera se ha convertido en una plataforma de contrarreloj.

Los ganadores, el Astana de Vicenzo Nibali que ha vestido a uno de sus corredores, Janez Brajkovic, con el maillot rojo de líder en Sansenxo. Segundo ha sido el Radioshack a 10 segundos seguido del Omega Pharma-Quickstep a 16.

Seguro que ya tenéis vuestra quiniela más o menos preparada. Son bastantes los nombres que se escuchan como posibles aspirantes al triunfo: el propio Nibali, Valverde del Movistar que se queda en la general a 29 segundos o Purito Rodríguez que ha perdido 59. Hay muchos otros nombres y esto no ha hecho más que empezar.

Mañana seguimos en tierras gallegas con la segunda etapa de la Vuelta y el primer final en alto. 176 kilómetros desde Pontevedra hasta el Alto do Monte da Groba en Baiona. ¡Comienza la batalla para ganar puestos en la clasificación general!

    Buena crónica y buen video, Henar. Hoy no he podido ver la retransmisión por tv pero con tu narración y filmación me llevo la esencia de la jornada.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  3. It’s nearly impossible to find educated people about this subject, however, you seem like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    Aw, this was a very nice post. Spending some time and actual effort to generate a superb article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and never seem to get nearly anything done.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
