You really don't need the stage profile for this one. It's like so flat.

The Vuelta a España concludes with its traditional sprinter friendly stage in Madrid. The course runs from San Sebastián de los Reyes to Madrid and is impressive in its flatness. There aren't any climbs. We would not want anyone to spill his champagne. there's a finishing circuit and it should be a speedy final kilometer. Pick your favorite sprinter, though really, can anyone beat Cavendish now?
