He is now 83, but Antonio Jiménez Quiles, born in Granada, made history in the Spanish Vuelta of 1955. He reached the second place despite he didn’t have a team. This has never been accomplished again by any other Spanish cyclist. I was especially good at mountain stages, in fact, he was Mountain Champion of Spain twice. He climbed up the podium over a hundred times throughout ten years. The book ‘Jiménez Quiles. Memoirs of a Cyclist’, written by his daughter Ángela, is a tribute to his career.
