Vigo - Mirador de Lobeira/Vilagarcía de Arousa 184.8 km
A long completely flat day with a short, sharp uphill finish. Final climb is 4 km at somewhere near 6%. Theme of the day will be if the teams with strong uphill sprinters like Gilbert's BMC, Gerran's Orica and Ulissi's Lampre are wiling to do the work to keep the breakaway from stealing the stage. Astana will probably be moderately interested.
The Spanish Inquisition condemns: Gianni Meersman
Meersman is having a 100% season so far. This could see him getting a Grand Tour stage as well.
