A single difficulty to disrupt the plans of the sprinters?
Once in Mogro, after 100 kilometers of racing on the coast, the peloton will return to land and the road will rear up for the only difficulty of the day. With a summit 60 kilometers from the finish line, the Alto de San Cipriano (3rd category, 4.3km at 5%) could be a launching pad for those who absolutely want to avoid a sprint finish and give themselves a chance to win at Suances. After the intermediate sprint in Cabezon de la Sal, there will be a new uphill section not listed before a rapid descent to reach the seaside in Comillas and start the return to Suances, already crossed shortly after passing through Mogro. A final which will not be easy to tackle, the last two kilometers being on an uphill slope which promises a final for a strong sprinter.
