Full startlist:
 
I don't think you can see the percentages from that video. But okay, it's Vuelta a Burgos, why not try something a little aloof?
Years ago they had a DTTT here. Average speed of about 70 km/h. Still waiting for a repeat of that.

Edit: found it.

 
The start list is diluted because you also have the Tour of Denmark and the Tour of Norway this week.
Also for the smaller Spanish teams they're splitting teams with the Volta a Portugal as well.

Looking forward to seeing Thomas Silva adapt to the pros. He has been powering over all terrains in the amateur scene so I want to see which direction he heads once racing at the higher level.

I believe the official profile is a bit off and the finish of the stage is closer to 750 meters a.s.l than the 800+ on the profile

I think the last climb is something like 2 km at around 5% very roughly.

I think it will be an interesting experiment in pacing and more interesting to me than a pure power focus TTT.
 
Great race as usual. I still remember when I watched this race in 2011 for the first time, being a huge Euskaltel-fan at the time, and looked forward to Antón and Sanchez on Lagunas de Neila. These were the prime years of Euskaltel where you still believed Antón could actually win a GT and Sanchez was on the top of his game.

Turned out that a climber by the name of Mikel Landa won the stage. Probably his first stage in the pros?
