OK, the race in 12 was great, but that was mainly down to Contador, not the route.
He'll concentrate on the TdF in 13, and the Vuelta will again go back to being the poor relation of the 3 Gt's.
there are alkways a ton of riders who have failed the giro or the tour that will always ride the vuelta. whatever course it is. so it's not a big mistake

So yes, they can
Maybe they can have a and b stages like some smaller stage races have?

They could start with a short prologue finishing on top of a hill in the morning, then have a 80km stage that's flat with a MTF later on the day.

They could have even more than 21 MTF's

as for now Worldtour races can't have a and b stages, so don't worry!

I hope they will put Monachil before Haza Llana in a stage like this



Otherwise it would be very disappointing.

Angliru is again " on fire". It seems that it could be climbed the last Saturday of the race. Here I have some rumours and suppositions:

Sure, but surely a GT has to have the best riders trying to win it, not a bunch of folk using it as a season add-on/second chance (or warm up for the Worlds, dropping out after the first week)
