Stage 14 - September 18: Málaga - Granada, 167 km

Today starts out flat for the first 40km, but then it's back into the hills for the Cat. 2 climb of Alto Ventas de Zafarraya and Cat. 3 Alto de los Bermejales, before a brief 40km respite that precedes the Cat. 1 Alto de Monachil at 1490 meters; the first time this climb has been included in La Vuelta. The 14 percent gradients with an average of plus 9 percent of the Alto de Monachil will break up the race for sure before the final 20km plunge down into Granada, 700m below.
