Stage 5: La Cabrera - Mirador de Peñas Llanas 129.2 km
This is where things start to get really spicy. We go uphill for real. The final climb is 5 km at 6.7% so nothing terrible but should create some decent separation.
Expected finish time: 15:20-15:45 CEST
First to the viewpoint : Demi Vollering
She’s never out of the top 2 on big days this year.
Stage 4: Cuenca - Guadalajara 133.1 km
An excellent chance for the punchier riders to dump the sprinters and get a stage win.
Expected finish time: 16:50-17:10 CEST
Head honcho on the Horche : Elise Chabbey
Trek would love to get a quick revenge here but if anyone fits the profile it’s Deignan and I dunno if she’s quite there yet. So I’m going with prolific winners Canyon/Sram.
