Fernando Escartín commentary:

Flat. New day for sprinters, and one of their final opportunities in this year's Vuelta. Their teams will be keeping everything in control so that there are no complications. The arrival in warm Seville after two weeks of competing will allow us to assess how tired everyone's legs are.


Mountain passes & hills:
Km 27.2 - Alto de Ardales7.2 kilometre-long climb at 4.3% - category 3

Last 5km:





So, who will win this bike race??

Flashbacks to this stage


Alberto Contador Velasco to win this bike race
Oh yeah, absolutely, as I wrote before that would be an epic sprinter attack from the bunch.

Aye :)


Sprinters rarely attack from the bunch. Alberto Contador however...!
Insane attack. This was the stage that contador showed to me that he would win that giro.

Lol, I still remember that after stage 7, when he was almost gapped in the uphill sprint, people were saying he must be desperate for bonus seconds. Then Etna explosion happened :lol:

I think he was gapped by scaponi at least (I know that he lost time but maybe was only in the bonifications).
 
I think it was bad decision from Bora (or from rider himself) not to send Sagan here
Even without super disposition he should just nail it
Couple of Sagan tailormade stages
