Stage 20 - September 20: La Granja de San Ildefonso - Alto de Navacerrada (ITT), 17.1km

The penultimate stage is once again a time trial. Unlike its traditional flat affair close to Madrid, this one is an uphill finish atop the Alto de Navacerrada. It is the same category one climb used the day before. But the riders will be going up on the other – the Segovian – side. From the start in La Granja de San Ildefonso it is 17.1kmkilometres to the finish.

Even though La Granja de San Ildefonso is used for the first time, it has close ties with the Vuelta. The winning crystal trophy is manufactured here each year in the Real Fábrica de Cristales.
