Froome delights Costa fans
British Tour de France winner and current leader of the Vuelta a España Chris Froome delighted Costa fans with a spectacular win at the Cumbre del Sol stage on Sunday. Thousands of fans crowded the roadsides to see the race cross the coast from Orihuela Costa to Benitachell.
STAGE winner and Vuelta leader Chris Froome generously donated his signed leader's red jersey to Benitachell 'festeros' last weekend.
The fiesta organisers, humbled by the famous cyclist's generosity, decided to raise funds from the gift by staging a raffle, with all proceeds going to the fiesta fund. The 'festeros' had participated in the race by setting up three refreshment stalls along the route, for which the public were very grateful in the heat of the day.
