Stage description

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

The Vuelta's longest stage this year is from Segovia to Burgos, over 210.5 kilometres. Definitely suited to the sprinters, the stage contains three intermediate sprints at Cuellar (km 56), Roa de Duero (km 109) and La Horra (km 115).

The last time the Vuelta visited Burgos was in 1998, when a stage started there with Abraham Olano in the leader's jersey. Olano went on to win the Vuelta that year, but unfortunately will not be taking part this year, his final year as a pro.
