Stage description

Start time: 12:55 CEST
Finish time: 17:30 CEST

This time the riders get a bit of a breather after the second round of high mountains with another transitional stage. The parcours from Granada to Cordoba does not offer any major difficulties, however the Cat. 2 climb of the Alto de San Jeronimo could provide a springboard for a breakaway. The summit of the climb sits just 12km from the finish, which promises a fast and potentially nervous finish.
