Stage description

Start time: 13:00 CEST
Finish time: 17:15 CEST

The stage following the first rest day takes the riders 166 km from Alcobendas to Collado Villalba via Madrid, where there is sure to be a big crowd to cheer on the peloton. The stage contains several climbs, including the Cat. 1 Alto de los Leones (1510m, 8km @ 6.2%) after 84 km, and the Puerto de Navacerrada (1880m, 11km @ 5.9%). This should be enough to split the peloton for the final downhill run into Collado Villalba.
