The only open question seems to be the second Pyrenees stage. It's supposed to be long and hard, and there have been rumours about a French finish, but knowing Unipublic I'd bet on a half-arsed stage to mighty Cerler with Cantó + Bonaigua and little more.

The stage of Andorra will start in Bagá so it is close to Andorra, we can have now Ordino, Comella, Rabassa and Canolich in only 150-160 km or Envalira, Ordino, Comella,etc

If the French finish is the case, then surely Cantó + Bonaigua then about 40km of flat before finishing halfway up the Col de Menté/Mourtis Ski Station would be more Unipublic's style?

Lol, no wonder Jrod is thrown out of the WT. He bribed Unipublic.

As far as I know Mourtis is on top of Mente.
I hope for Portillon - Superbagneres.

Or Balès + Peyragudes. (Or Balès + Superbagneres).

Not happening though.

Here's the J-Rod-bribery Vuelta (implausible in places).

1) Prologue: Gibraltar - El Peñón de Gibraltar (ITT) (profile)
2) La Linea - Cerro el Moro/Mijas (profile)
3) Málaga - Archidona (Santuario de la Virgen de Gracia) (profile)
4) Loja - Valdepeñas de Jaén
5) Jaén - Turre (Ruinas el Dondo) (profile)
6) somewhere near Turre - Cartagena (Castillo de San Julián) (profile)
7) Murcía - Xorret del Catí (profile - finish just under 2km after summit)
8) Albacete - Cuenca (Castillo) (profile - around 1,5km. Where Purito won his national championships)
9) Castellón de la Plana - Benicassim (ITT) very hilly, based on 2011 Spanish nationals course
10) Barcelona - Vallcebre (short descent then mild uphill final kilometre after ascent of Fumanya-Pradell) (profile)
11) La Seu d'Urgell - Col de Menté/Ski Station Mourtis (profile)
12) Bagnères-de-Luchon - Hoz de Jacá (profile)
13) Pamplona - Zarautz/Orio (after descent from double ascent of Aia) (profile)
14) Zarautz - Santuario de Urkiola (profile)
15) Durango - Iondogorta (profile)
16) Bilbao - Peña Cabarga
17) Gijón - Valdeferreiros (profile)
18) Lugo - Ourense (Costiña de Canedo 8km from finish) (profile)
19) Ponferrada - Estación de Esquí El Morredero (MTT) (profile)
20) Valladolid - San Lorenzo de El Escorial
21) wherever - Madrid

Pretty much all perfect for Purito - few climbs that could be considered too long for his optimum, all about the steepness, those stages that aren't MTFs give him something nice and steep to make an advantage on that he can hold to the end, like at Lombardia or País Vasco 2010, a stage starting in his birthplace, an all-too-rare trip to another country, and even leaving out a few places like the Castillo de Burgos and Mirador de Ézaro so he can come back the next year.

It's actually a bit further up, but when actually including a genuine full length brutal climb, Unipublic have made it their business to only finish part way up, eg Ancares, Dornajo, Canolich, Peñas Blancas.
