Manx cyclist Mark Christian will make his debut in a Grand Tour event today as the Vuelta a Espana gets underway.

The 26-year-old has been included in Aqua Blue Sport's roster for the final Grand Tour race of the year.

The Vuelta gets underway with a team time trial in Nimes in France this afternoon, and will head through Andorra before arriving in Spain on Tuesday, finishing in Madrid on September 101th.

Christian, who won a bronze medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games, finished 45th in the Vuelta a Burgos in Spain earlier this month.
