Here it is - after P-N and T-A, the next opportunity to see the big GT guns in action is Volta a Catalunya.
As usual, the route is clearly preferring those who can climb, with three middle mountain stages ending after the descent, two MTFs (one easier and one harder) and usual Montjuic circuit in Barcelona on the final day. This year, the riders will have to face also a long TTT on the second day of the race.
