All we know is Envalira is the Cima Alberto Fernández.


In that case Creueta-Puymorens-Envalira more or less writes itself for the first part of the stage, surely?

Yes. Plus Ordino + Comella + Canolich I guess.

Envalirafrom Puymorens before Canolich? That sounds likely. Let's see what's between Envalira and Canolich

Ordino and Comella I say.

Too optimistic? Maybe...

The only half-way interesting mountain pass in a stage not finishing in a MTF, last year's Mirador de Ezaro (2kms at 14%), is not included after all.

Of course it isn't. Riders might even think about doing something there!

It is Ordino and Comella.

Envalira Tunnel + Ordino + Comella + Canolich

Cantó + Bonaigua + Balès + Peyresourde + Peyragudes.

This last one a very strong contender for hardest Vuelta stage ever.

He doesn't really care. Not doing Vuelta.

Henao's Sky designated leader, he's enjoying this I think ;) :)

Joaquim Rodríguez ‏@PuritoRodriguez
Espectacular @lavuelta de este año!!! Dura no... Lo siguiente!!!!!!!

what bothers me is that most of the people in my TL seem to think lots of mtf = a good race. What they don't understand is that it was good last year because Alberto attacked a lot. And this year he won't race it. So it will be Jrod all the way and there isn't a thing that's exciting about seeing Jrod sprint away with 1k to go every other freaking stage.

Would Superbagnères really have killed them? Hell, after Balès, I'd happily have taken a finish in Bagnères-de-Luchon. But that wouldn't be Unipublic's style, of course. Peyresourde *vomit*

I must say Vuelta 13 route is better than I expected, but I could a agree about the bads.


The TTT is 30 km, to me is a good choice but they spoil the 38 km ITT with that 3rd cat climb

Full route is already online: http://www.lavuelta.com/13/es/recorrido/vuelta.html

With the profiles of ALL stages. One aspect in which the Vuelta fairs better than the Tour.

Unipublic has removed what prevented Purito to win in 2012 and now there's a flat stage after the second rest day.
