Can anyone tell me what happened to Stage 4 of the Tour of Andalucia! Cycling News and the Gibraltar Chronicle had reported Stage 4 would be a tt on the rock. I had been keeping an eye on the web site http://www.vueltaandalucia.com and have booked a holiday in Gibraltar so that we could watch the race. I now see that the stage is Malaga to Malaga. When did it change!!??
Any idea?

Has it changed ?
Race website has not got stage details yet (Pagina en Construcción},
http://www.vueltaandalucia.com/
but last I read stage 4 is still the TT in Gib, stage 5 is now Malaga to Malaga.

With one month to go and the course not yet being official I would not trust a post one month old in a news site. I would not trust the official site either ;)

However, the first and last stages (the ones looking more spectacular on the map) are the same in both sites.

This is what the first stage finish looks like:

Last stage in both sites is Torrox Costa - Antequera. Both towns are in the province of Malaga, and this is what the esciclismo post describes misleadingly.

it does rather seem the height of disorganisation..

and even when the website is up to date it looks like it was done by gcse students.. (with expected grades of E)
