Stage description

Start time: 12:41 CEST
Finish time: 17:15 CEST

The sprinters, at least those who haven't had their spirits crushed, get another chance today, with the seventh stage bearing little resemblance to the mountains of stage six.

Beginning in Jaen, the stage gently undulates before descending from Antequera to Málaga 200 kilometres later. Teams will have to work the peloton hard if they want to control those who attempt to break away.

The riders will need to conserve some energy though, as the next stage heads back up into the mountains.
