FERNANDO ESCARTÍN’S COMMENT

Very tough, pure mountain stage. Over 180 km with slopes totalling almost 4500 m and a similar layout to the stage won by Ryder Hesjedal in 2009: Alto Collado Venta Luisa, Alto de Castro de Filabres and Velefique, all of them concentrated in the second-half of the stage.
