Fernando Escartín commentary
MOUNTAIN. This stage features an extremely tough finale that will make a difference to the general classification. Before climbing La Camperona, the peloton will have to overcome another mountain pass, Puerto de Tarna (km 105,5), which will whittle down the riders in the lead. Attempts to escape are likely, though the strongest teams will work hard to neutralise them.
