It’s not often that you see races cancelled because of wind but the Volta a La Marina in Benidorm, Spain had winds so high that they had to do exactly that. This takes riding in the wind to a totally new level. How windy was your ride today? Let us know in the comments below.
You quite often hear about competitors 'being blown away' in sport but it actually happened on Sunday to cyclists in Benidorm. Local Spanish media were reporting gusts of up to 90 mph. Cyclists, trees… even motorbikes were being blown sideways. The race had to be abandoned by organisers.
