This is according to CN today leaked to La Marca which are usually pretty reliable. However, can this route really be true? Check it out, the climbs are completely over the top with the high % finishes demanding a MTB gearing. The geography seems to be a response to the scorching heat of the first week but to dismiss the south and south west seems pointless given the base of support there.
Looks like the Giro of last year which was too hard and produced survival riding (bertie aside). What do you think? Maybe I've misinterpreted it (not for the first time!).
