Fernando Escartín commentary
MID-MOUNTAIN. This stage will feature the first favourable arrival for sprinters in a Vuelta that will not provide them with many other opportunities. The day's only mountain pass, a 1st category climb, is located at the start of the stage, which should not break up the race too much.
