Stage description

Start time: 13:52 CEST
Finish time: 17:15 CEST

Today's stage from Benavente to Salamanca does not have a particularly fearsome profile, but the wind and weather conditions are expected to play a big role in the outcome. The 146 km stage includes three intermediate sprints, the last of which comes at 10 km to go.

The Vuelta started in Salamanca last year with a time trial, won by David Millar. The year before, Davide Bramati won a small sprint after a breakaway group succeeded in escaping the peloton.
