Fernando Escartín commentary
MID-MOUNTAIN. A deceiving stage, upon first glance, that will be beneficial to sprinters. Rouleurs will have to face rugged Galician territory, which will take its toll. Teams will try to stay strong in order to neutralise possible escapes but it will be difficult to control them.
