Stage 18 - September 18: Valladolid - Las Rozas, 167.4km

Even though named lions's wall – Puerto de los Leones - this category climb is rather easy. It is the only categori9sed uphill of the day in an otherwise mostly downhill and flat stage towards Las Rozas. This town is already a stone's throw from Madrid, adding extra incentive for those who are at the verge of abandoning to hang tough for a few more days.

Laz Rozas hosts a stage finish for the second time. Last year it was Pedro Díaz Lobato who won solo, so maybe the sprinters will be left out again? Las Rozas has one of the highest average per capita incomes in the Community of Madrid.
