Thanks. The Andorra thing is quite depressing.
Let's hope we get at least one mountain stage.

Well said but the route of TDF 2012 was the worst ever, IMHO.

So it seems the stage before Angliru will finish on top Monte Naranco. 1990s revival. Unipublic have already made clear the stage will be soft.

It seems I was too optimistic when I said we'd get 11 MTFs. It looks more like it's going to be 12 or even 13.

I fear I was too soft when I rated last year's route with the worst possible mark.

If only there was a long (over 35 km) flat ITT

Make sure you make the poll yourself next time and make sure a 0 is an option

The only hopes are the stage of Granada ( if it goes with Purche and Dornajo),Rabassa before Canolich, a Pyrenean stage in ¿ France??, and perhaps a medium mountain stage in Cantabria before Naranco, but I am not optimistic at all.

The appearance of the route is the worst since 2007

I wish the Angliru stage could include the same climbs Cycling Magazine "Ciclismo A Fondo" (the first press which talked about Angliru) showed us on that first article about this big mountain. It was a big tribute to Angliru.

A mouintain stage with:

Cabruñana (Third Category)
San Lorenzo (Special Category)
Cobertoria (First Category)
Cordal (First Category)
Angliru (Special Category)

It would be the hardest stage of Vuelta history, I think.
