Start time: 12:31 CEST
Finish time: 17:15 CEST
A few categorised climbs break up this otherwise downhill stage from Burgos
to Santander. The toughest mountain comes at 83 km to go, with the Cat. 1 Alto
Portillo de la Sia, a 7 km climb averaging 6.1%. Following that there are two
Cat. 3 climbs at km 135 and 145, but the finish is well suited to a bunch sprint.
Santander, in Cantabria, is one of the more popular Vuelta cities. It was first
visited in 1935 and last in 2000, when Mariano Piccoli won.
