Jerez de la Frontera - Estepona/Alto de Peñas Blancas 166.6 km

Happy playtime is over, now it's back to the uphill finishes again. Flat-ish rolling course and then, bam! 14.5 km climb at 6.6% to the finish. Imaginative it is not but it should make for good racing at the end.

The Spanish Inquisition condemns: Alejandro Valverde

Seriously, he has to start looking at least half-interested at some point now, doesn't he? Movistar can't keep zombie-riding up the final climbs for him to sit still and do nothing for three weeks, can they?
