Commentary from Fernando Escartín

Lugo roads should encourage an escape to take place before entering León territory. The Alto Campo de Arbre, a Category 3 climb, will serve as a prologue for the final climb up to the Ancares Mountain Pass on its León slope – an unprecedented climb in La Vuelta, consisting of 7.7 km with an inclination of 9% and ramps of 15%, and an inclination 12% during the last 5 km. This finale will be very important to the men fighting for the general classification.
