The big problem with Gamoniteiru is the lack of space at the top. Unipublic needs more space for the arrival and they want the Asturian Government to adjust the field. So sooner or later, this climb will be in the Vuelta but this year looks like they are going to climb Cobertoria on the hard side.

I think that only one of them will be in the Vuelta. Angliru or Gamoniteiro. I hope Gamoniteiro, and Angliru for othr year.

As usual, following the rumours we can have a great route or an absolutely ridiculous one. I hope Unipublic prepare one or to good mountain stages ar least.

For example Monachil - Haza Llana finishing in the Alhambra, the appeareance of Gamoniteiro and a good stage in Andorra would make happy

The Vuelta 2013 will visit Peña Escrita next year...a terrible climb and it is supposed to be more surprises

Habrá Peña Escrita... Pero mas al Norte mirando al Mediterráneo habrá algo también muy grande... Y hasta aquí puedo contar!!!

Good luck to anyone who attacks in the fourth kilometre!

Bearing in mind the probable direction of the stage that will probably be a letdown, but you could chain together a few good climbs to make a finish there.

Although the penultimate climb isn't much and there's a bit of flat through Motril, I'd vote for Haza del Lino - Conjuros - Ítrabo - Peña Escrita, to make sure there's sufficient suffering in the legs before the base.

Joaquím Rodríguez must be thinking "wow, and I thought I'd blown my best chance to win a GT".

I think that Peña Escrita will be after the stage of Haza llana, so I don´t think there will be tough climbs before.

I would be happy if they do Purche -Haza llana, finishing in Granada and the following day Peña Escrita ( even if the stage is not very hard).

And the day beforre Haza llana we will have Córdoba / Valdepeñas or Pandera
