Congrats to Sepp Kuss


Source: @lavuelta

A few years ago a friend and I were discussing the state of American cyclists on the world tour.  He said I should keep an eye on Sepp Kuss.  Kuss then proceeded to destroy the field in the Tour of Utah.  Perhaps he was on to something.  

Fastforward to today and Kuss is now the winner of the Vuelta a España.

It was great to see the famed superdomestique and exceedingly nice Kuss win a grand tour.  Many of speculated for some time if he could do it.  It certainly wasn't according to the script going into the race (he was riding in support) and some good fortune and a great team helped of course, but that's how these things are won.  

Of course Kuss is also a Nordic skier, so that's a good thing too.  

Congrats to Sepp.
