PNW Cyclist Chris Horner Wins the 2013 Vuelta a España

Chris Horner Vuelta 2013

Chris Horner, the Bend, OR cyclist completed the biggest victory of his career on Sunday, becoming the first American in history to win the Vuelta a España and the oldest champion, at age 41, of any of pro cycling’s Grand Tours (Tour de France, Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a España). Probably slightly different than how most Americans spend the month before their 42nd birthday. The previous oldest winner for one of the Grand Tours was Firmin Lambot, who won the 1922 Tour de France at age 36.
