Stage description

Start time: 12:37 CEST
Finish time: 17:15 CEST

This long, undulating stage from Santander to Gijon will require the riders to have their wits about them. The stage is very suited to a bunch finish, as many of the GC riders will be thinking about tomorrow's tough stage to El Angliru. The sprinters teams should make the most of their opportunity, and control the stage. However the small climbs in the last 40 km may break things up a little.
