Stage description

Start time: 13:38 CEST
Finish time: 17:30 CEST

Today the Vuelta drops back out of the highlands with 165 kilometres between Sortia Natural and Zaragoza. After some undulations in the first half of the stage, including the only classified climb, the Cat. 3 Alto de Lanzas Agudas, the route is steadily downhill to Zaragoza. This is an ideal parcours for the teams hoping to control the race for a bunch finish.
