Default Vuelta 2013 route

It's going to start in a place like this:


It's called a "batea". A tray where people in Galicia raise mussels. The first stage will be a Team Time Trial in "Villanova de Arousa" a beautiful place with a lot of beaches you could watch in Vuelta 2012.

It's planned another stage in Galicia with this final:





"Faro de Finisterre".

It's also not stupendously Unipublictastic either, if they actually finish at the spot in the image the last kilometre or so will be relatively flat, after a two-stepped climb which gets pretty steep at times. Nevertheless, it's only 120m up or so. This is likely to be more Cauberg than Ézaro.

Of course, now I've said that they'll asphalt a parking place up at the top of the hill and add some sections of 20%+ up there.

Looks like a good chance for Phil, Valverde or Sagan to snatch the leaders jersey for the first week.

Sad to hear there will be another TTT start though. I prefer a real stage or a prologue to kick things off...

Looks like a good first stage, always have liked it when they have a uphill finish to start off a GT.

Any chance of Unipublic taking a detour to a certain climb in Germany that peaks at 38-42%?

The Vuelta will get all it needs in that respect in the Basque country, with 3km of concreted hell:
