That's not the only time that will happen in this Vuelta. The last week will feature Pena Cabarga + Monte Naranco + Angliru.

There will be three threes:
Peņas Blancas-Valdepeņas-Haza LLana.....first week, even though valdepeņas is only an uphill

Canolich-Another-Formigal................second week
Peņa Cabarga-Naranco-Angliru............last week.

In spite of that if the stage of Cabarga is fine and the unknown Pyrenean stage is fine we can have a good Vuelta

In this interview, Olano used the word "sadly" when referring to the Fuente De stage.

That's ridiculous.
