Stage Predictor Game: Stage 6




Straight forward sprint stage until the Cresta del Gallo climb, which summits 18km from the finish. It's nothing too serious but may allow an opportunistic rider to foil the field sprint.

What the Vuelta website says:

 

Thursday 2nd September will be competed for the 6th stage, a journeys´s day which start is in the city Caravaca de la Cruz, located in Murcia which also gave good luck to the Soccer Spanish Team before Southafrica´s Soccer Championship. We hope it also will give the same good luck to a “peloton” that must arrive to the streets of Murcia after having runned 148 km.

The stage includes a very well known final and also very exciting trap: it has to be climbed to the Alto de la Cresta del Gallo (2nd category) very closed to the finish line, exactly just 10 km before it. This climbing is not only very hard because of its ramps, but also includes a very accelerated descent, which sometimes shows greater differences between the riders than the climbing, as it was already seen last year.
