Vuelta a Castilla y Leon: A photo gallery

Racers woke up in Leon to find snow falling before Saturday's two-climb fourth stage of the Vuelta a Castilla y Leon. A little snow isn't the sort of thing to stop Europe's tough pros, even though a few were half-wishing that the stage would be canceled. Alejandro Valverde (CV-Kelme) was probably not among them, however – he won the 133.4km stage ahead of Koldo Gil (Liberty Seguros).VeloNews European correspondent Andrew Hood made the rounds before the start to snap a few pictures.
