I prepared for La Vuelta at my hometown: Bogotá, Colombia. Altitude, friends and family are the perfect mixes to train for a Grand Tour. This year, the 5th edition of  Clásica Esteban Chaves took place in early August. Clásica Esteban Chaves is a 4-stage, U16, Junior and Women race organized by my foundation (FUN) to promote healthy competition and love for cycling across Colombian families. The last stage, is an intense circuit on the main roads of the city.
