Course description

There are many incentives in this first flat stage along a route in which the average speed is going to be dizzy. The wind is always the worst enemy of the riders, but at the same time it might also be an ally. Many things may happen on the way to Valladolid, but a start en masse seems to be guaranteed as the sprinters won´t be willing to waste a single day of the race. Distance is short. Those teams who have not any sprinter will want to break the race and those who have them are going to fight for keeping the group together. Over 45 kilometres per hour is the predicted average speed.
