Stage description

Start time: 14:09 CEST
Finish time: 17:15 CEST

Córdoba once again bears witness to a stage of the Vuelta. And with its shorter distance of 130 kilometers, you can bet that the riders will try to gain some distance over their opponents before the climb to Alto de San Jerónimo at kilometre 107.

This stage also gives the people of Córdoba three chances to view the race, as not only does the stage start and finish in Córdoba, but the loop visits Córdoba at the 100 kilometre mark.

The sprinters should attempt to take advantage in this stage, gathering as many points as they can.
