Andalucia Bike race stage 5

The rain in Spain falls mainly in .... Jaen. And then it snows.... lots!

Stage 5 of the race was cancelled. Heavy rain fell at the start in Jaen and the passes we were due to race over were covered in snow so the organisers decided to cancel the stage.

Myself and James rode back up to the hotel (up a mountain!) to spin our legs our and found and inch of snow where there had been nothing about an hour before. The wind was freezing and we were both pretty glad not to be racing.

1 hotel evacuation later and we are now back down below the snow line so should be good to go in tomorrows time trial, hopefully they don't shorten it too much!
