Santa Pola - La Manga del Mar Menor 173.7 km
Weekend sprint stage? I think the Vuelta management may need to call on professional paranormal investigators and eliminators to exorcise the spirit of Jean-Marie Leblanc from their offices.
Most of the stage is along the coast and the final 8-10 km is just a straight shot up the narrow peninsula. It's going to look spectacular if nothing else.
Marinero del día :Fabio Jakobsen
Uncomplicated stuff but this has that QuickStep whiff about it.
