Picón Blanco, stage 3:
Lagunas de Neila, stage 5:
Some names of interest:
Bernal, Landa, Carthy, Bardet, Padun.
Sceptical about that one if I look at their use of Cobertoria or San LorenzoLooking forward to the introduction of Picón Blanco into a shallow MTF at Estación de Esquí Lunada for a future Vuelta now descending Picón Blanco is a possibility. That could be a genuine Mortirolo-Aprica type pairing. Especially as in the Vuelta you could come from Cantabria and have Portillo de la Sía or something.
Picón Blanco is now a descent finish. That's why.What, no DQS?!
I don't believe it! How could they do this to Remco? I mean it is a place of his biggest success, we have stacked field again, Bernal is here, Yates brothers, Landa, Sivakov, Bardet, Padun, Dani Martinez, Vlasov, Hugh Carthy, Fabio Aru... And on top of that, we have Picon Blanco again..!
What a shame!
How steep is the final km in stage 1?
I k at about 6%. It’s the one Grosschartner won last year with an early attack and Nizzolo won the year before beating Aranburu at the line.
