Stage description

Start time: 13:55 CEST
Finish time: 17:30 CEST

More climbing on the menu in stage 4, but as the race heads from Santander to Burgos, the elevation gain is concentrated in the first half of the stage. Climbing up to just over 1,000 metres over the Puerto del Escudo, the parcours undulates somewhat but poses no major obstacles for the next 100km. Short climbs near the finish could help break things up, but chances of a bunch finish are still good.
