The Vuelta Espana featured a final week of racing in Northern Spain that included a number of mountain passes and hill top finishes. Chris Horner put together several good races and took over the race lead, putting himself in position to be the oldest grand tour winner ever.
This week we pay homage to old guys with an old vine Garnacha from Northern Spain taking on a Washington State Tempranillo.

One of the most intringuing racers has been Chris Horner, the "old man" of the peloton. Horner is 41 years old and has been on the sidelines for most of the year due to knee issues. He returned at the Tour of Utah and told everybody that the Vuelta was his goal. So far, he is backing up his words with action!
This week's Lucha Vino challenge features a Garnacha from Washington taking on an "old man" from La Mancha.
