https://www.procyclingstats.com/race/vuelta-a-burgos/2018/overview

Stage 1 (Tue, 7 Aug): Catedral Burgos – El Castillo, 151 km.
The usual hill finish at the castle with a mistake in the profile as the loop after the first pass over the finish line is around 10kms long.
Image

Stage 2 (Wed, 8 Aug): Belorado – Castrojeriz, 163 km.
Image

Stage 3 (Thu, 9 Aug): Sedano – Picón Blanco, 149 km.
A repeat of the MTF they featured last year for the first time where Landa set the foundation for his win.
Image

Stage 4 (Fri, 10 Aug): Monasterio de San Pedro de Cardeña – Clunia, 165 km.
Another regular uphill finish to the ruins of the old Roman town.
Image

Stage 5 (Sat, 11 Aug): Salas de los Infantes – Lagunas de Neila, 141 km.
Like last year, after the introduction of Picón Blanco the stage to Lagunas de Neila goes direct to the summit without the loop they used to do.

Also, Lagunas de Neila is a multi-sided climb. They're climbing the easiest side, so that it's not an OTT race with Picón Blanco already there. In the old 'loop' design, they descended this side.

Essentially, from Quintanar de la Sierra there are two roads, one which goes to the Puerto del Collado, which is very gradual, and one which goes to Lagunas de Neila, which is at a mid-gradient. At the Puerto del Collado, you can either continue onto the descent into the village of Neila, or turn left and take the steep trunk road which links the Puerto del Collado to the older road to the summit. If you continue into Neila, you can either turn right into the Cameros valley and into La Rioja, or you can turn left to head out towards Burgos again. A couple of kilometres onto this road, there's a left hand turn which takes you up towards Lagunas de Neila.

The road from Quintanar de la Sierra and the road from Quintanar de la Sierra via Puerto del Collado both meet, before a slightly shallower stretch, where they then meet the road from Neila, and have the steep final couple of kilometres. In the old loop they would climb to the Puerto, descend to the village, then climb to this junction, and descend to Quintanar via the old road, then do it again and go all the way to the summit. In the 1998 Vuelta, they climbed to the Puerto del Collado then took the steep link road all the way to the summit.

Neila side (traditional Vuelta a Burgos loop, from Neila village/junction for Quintanar):
Image
(note the junction for Quintanar 2km from the top - this is where they usually turn back downhill on the first loop)

Quintanar via Puerto del Collado side (1998 Vuelta route):
Image
(the traditional Vuelta a Burgos loop descends 1,5km or so of this, between the junction marked El Pontón (that's the junction mentioned above) and the junction at 11,5km for Quintanar)

Quintanar camino viejo (2017-18 Vuelta a Burgos route, descended in traditional Vuelta a Burgos loop):

So is it the second without the loop? I didn't understand clearly your reading.

When has he last performed?

I believe it's gonna be between Bilbao, Lopez,Tao, De La Cruz, Meintjes and wonderkid Sosa. But there's big race form questions with them all, also with the other outsiders.
Looking forward to seing how Soto and Moschetti performs in the flat stages.

If Sosa is in shape like in the Adriatica Ionica Race or Tour of the Alps it will be difficult to beat him. Bilbao, MAL, Tao and De la Cruz still are bigger favorites.

So annoying. I particularly wanted to see the finish as I know it quite well. There was also meant to be a stream on EITB but I couldn't get it to work. Will try again tomorrow and hope it is better.

Traditional loop does the false flat from the second one, then the first one, then descends the third one, then does it all again.

1998 Vuelta (the only time Lagunas de Neila has been in the race) did the second one.

2017 and 2018 Vueltas a Burgos climb the third one.

Well, i suppose they will need a lot of CLIMBING skills to get to the finish line of stage 5

Absolutely brilliant. Of course there aren't many decent sprinters present but it's still a win at one of the highest levels in cycling.
He needs to work on his climbing skills though, yesterday he finished dead last, more than 6 minutes behind the "gruppetto".

He went a bit quiet after his seven wins earlier in the season, but his slightly delayed eighth one is by far the biggest. A fantastic year for the dude, and he has almost single handedly made it an excellent year for Polartec.

He has already been signed up for next year by a big team, right? Which one is it again?

A pity for Polartec that they will lose him, but of course that’s ultimately the point of a development team.
