Stage description

Start time: 12:37 CEST
Finish time (last rider finish): 17:30 CEST

Not without some climbing, the first week of the Vuelta does remain generally suited to sprint finishes. At a minimum, the time gaps between those searching for the overall title should not be too consequential, depnding on the relative strengths of the teams in the opening day's team time trial. Thursday's 43.8km individual time trial should give the next indication of who is in form and who can challenge for the general classification.

The moderately long circuit around Zaragoza features some undulations, but no classified climbs. The powerful time trial riders should make their mark today. Guaging one's strength and not going too far into the read on the opening climbs will be critical for a strong finish.
