Stage description

Start time (first rider): 14:24 CEST
Finish time (last rider): 17:45 CEST

The final stage of the 2002 Vuelta is a 41.2 km time trial, finishing in Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in Madrid, for the last 100 years the home of Real Madrid. The race is definitely not over, as last year's edition showed: In 2001 Angel Casero overcame the 25 second deficit to Oscar Sevilla to win the Vuelta on the last day.

The stage starts in Warner Bros Park, passing via San Martín de la Vega and Perales del Río and then into Madrid, where it's sure to be followed by a big crowd in the Spanish capital.
