Blocks of 2, 3, 3 and 4 consecutive MTF.

Purito is really mad to do the Tour this year. He won't get a better chance to win the vuelta unless Unipublic becomes even more retarded next year.

I see one good thing, climbs get overused way faster this way, so they might try to find new climbs faster

Unipublic are better than ASO in that regard.

In the last two weeks, there will be 3 flat or flatish stages, 1 ITT and 10 MTFs.

Well, Burgos is not a summit finish, it will be a finish after the descent of a 3rd/4th cathegory climb.

Not really, not enough surface for the Vuelta it would finish in an important avenue.
Besides in the last days it is supposed to be 11 summit finishes and they didn´t say anything about Burgos, so it would be a flat stage with just the ascent of the castle to give emotion to the last kilometres
