Stage 5 - September 5: Cangas de Onís - Reinosa, 157.4km

The stage from Cangas de Onís to Reinosa will not decide the Vuelta with its last peak coming at kilometre 136 but it will likely make one contender a 'non-contender.'

Three category 2 climbs dot the parcours before the final category 1 blast up the Puerto de la Palombera. Any rider wishing to have a chance today might want to channel the forces of German Dietrich Thurau who won an almost identical stage in 1976.
