Gandia - Balcón de Alicante 152 km km
This is a real mountain challenge, here's where may get some more definitive answers and some riders will have to face some hard truths. Cruel uphill almost right from the start as well and thankfully it's a stage we get to see from Km 0.
Final climb profile is not what you would call forgiving either.
Balconette del día : Primož Roglič
Anyone with tridents, saladforks or any other kind of cutlery-inspired team weapons would be wise to try and use them against Jumbo on days like today if they are going to get anything out of them. I doubt they'll be wildly successful though.
