A look at the parcours

Vintage Vuelta as the climbers get the first real chance to test their legs. The majority of the 170.7km stage is up and down, but it's the summit finish near the Javalambre Observatory that will test the best in the race. The climb comes in at 11.1km with an average gradient of 7.8%, but it gets steeper as it goes, with much of the final 6km in double figures in terms of gradient.
