Stage description

Start time: 14:08 CEST
Finish time: 17:15 CEST

Looking more like a time trial stage, day three of La Vuelta is a mere 134 kilometres long, with only one climb, a 13 kilometre, 150 meter rise half way into the course. Favouring the sprinters, those who managed to keep to the front in the previous mountain stage will be in good standing for the top position.

With the last section of the stage being downhill into the beautiful city of Murcia, the riders will certainly be pushing the bigger gears in an attempt to rack up points in the last two sprints.
