It would be great having a stage with the last 95 kilometres like this:

Lunada, Caracol, Albionzo, Estranguada and Peña Cabarga.

The climb to Peña Cabarga would be far for Estranguada but it is a very good stage. I sign it at the moment.

In relation to la capia I don´t know anything about it, but the finish line is supposed to be in Peña Cabarga or Fuente De.

I don't think this aspect has been commented on at all, but Unipublic is taking its insanity to unseen levels these days. Not only do they get rid of all mountain passes that could trigger attacks before the riders can see the finish, but they're now not even climbing the final (and only) climbs of stages in their entirety. In this edition we'll watch the riders stop at km 7 of this climb again:

And we'll also witness a stage finish on km 17 of this:

Image

And it's been reported today that Peñas Blancas will not be climbed to the top at Los Reales either. They'll stop at the Peñas Blancas pass. According to an Andalusian newspaper, Unipublic "did not want any significant gaps too early". As you see, they're not even sugarcoating their intentions anymore.

well I can't say I'm surprised.
A race that doesn't give an attacker the chance to finish it off alone is not a race anymore.

Ok so we will have something like this stage I designed, only finishing on top of Dornajo instead of descending to Granada-La Alhambra.

That's not the only time that will happen in this Vuelta. The last week will feature Pena Cabarga + Monte Naranco + Angliru.

There will be three threes:
Peñas Blancas-Valdepeñas-Haza LLana.....first week, even though valdepeñas is only an uphill

Canolich-Another-Formigal................second week
Peña Cabarga-Naranco-Angliru............last week.

In spite of that if the stage of Cabarga is fine and the unknown Pyrenean stage is fine we can have a good Vuelta

This way is.... well I don't know how to name this kind of bs.

In this interview, Olano used the word "sadly" when referring to the Fuente De stage.

That's ridiculous.
