Route and profiles are already in lavuelta.com. It's clearly a step back from 2017.

The only good thing


Ignore the length though.

All functionally unipuerto, all uninspiring climbs, except for this stage.

Profiles on the TTs aren't very good, cause I think both are pretty hilly.

Really hope Dumoulin goes for Giro + Vuelta after seeing this.

So the Vuelta is the most TT friendly route. That's interesting

A GT with a prologue and one medium length TT is now "the most TT friendly route". This year is really pathetic as far as GT design is concerned. There are a few decent stages here and there, but overall they are all so imbalanced......
