    Two sprints will bring some variation in the pretty flat part of this 3rd stage, one in A Escusa and the other one in a small detour on the Illa de Arousa.

    4/ Tuesday 27 August 2013 - Lalín / A Estrada > Fisterra - La etapa del fin del mundo - 189 km

    This 4th stage is nicknamed the end of the world stage due to the place where it will finish in Fisterra on the landslide which is often the final destination of pelgrims who visit Santiago de Compostela.

    The start of this stage will be in Lalín and the riders will also go off to Santiago de Compostela. To get there, they do a little detour via A Estrada, which allowed this city's name to be part of the stage title, before they battle for the first sprint in Vedra. Once they get in Santiago, they'll continue their trip in the same direction, towards Mazaricos and via the feeding zone of this stage, before they go on in south-western direction where they'll find the coast close to Quilmas where they'll battle for the second intermediate sprint.

    They'll then first follow the coast line before they go landinwards to climb up Mirador de Ézaro, 3rd category climb. Direction Fisterra from there where they'll battle for the stage win.

    This second weekend of the Vuelta a España 2013 will start with a stage which has a quite flat profile, but which finishes on top of a 1st category climb.

    After the start in Jerez de la Frontera, the riders will first go towards Arcos de la Frontera, east, before they continue south-east towards the coast line where they'll dispute the two intermediate sprints of this stage, in San Enrique de Guadiaro and in Estepona.

    This city gave its name to the finish of this stage, but after this sprint the riders will rapidly get on the final climb towards the finish on top of the Alto de Peñas Blancas.

    Even though the weekend is over and the TV audience thus goes back down to its weekday level, this 10th stage on Monday 2 September offers a more interesting profile in the final part of the stage.

    Indeed, while the first 3 quarters of the stage will not be exceptional, it's only after the two sprints (Granada and a bit further) that the riders will start the climb of the Alto de Monachil, of the first category, of which the descent will be followed by the first signs of the final climb of the Alto de Hazallanas, outside category climb where they'll get via Güéjar Sierra.

    After these 10 stages, the riders will finally have the chance to get their first rest day. The day before they have a big transfer on the programme however since they'll come from almost the extreme south of Spain and will have to go up to the north of the country to get closer to the start of the 11th stage.

    11/ Wednesday 4 September 2013 - Tarazona > Tarazona - individual time trial - 38.8 km

    The first and last individual time trial of this Tour of Spain will start and finish in Tarazona.

    This 3rd Saturday a heavy stage will be on the programme of this Vuelta a España 2013, between Bagà and the Collada de la Gallina in Andorra: once the riders get to Andorra they'll have quite some climbing to do. First of all the Port de Envalira, outside category, after which the riders will go in opposite direction for the descent towards the foot of the Coll de Ordino followed by the Alto de la Comella, both 2nd category. At the south-western limit of Andorra, the riders will then climb towards the finish on top of the Collada de la Gallina, 1st category.

    This 16th stage, first one of the last week of the Vuelta a España 2013 is short but that doesn't mean it's easy.

    That's because this 17th stage will start in Calahorra, a little bit north of Tarazona. It'll be a calm comeback to racing after this second rest day, with a sprint in Logroño, two 3rd category climbs in the second half of the stage, the Alto de Pradilla and the Alto de Valmala, before the second intermediate sprint, in Ibeas de Juarros, not far from the finish in Burgos.

    Before that climb, the riders will start in Avilés and climb the Alto de la Cabruñana of the 3rd category which will have its summit after a bit over 45 kilometers, followed by the sprint in Trubia and by the climb of the Alto de Tenebredo of the 2nd category. After the sprint in Mieres, the final part of this stage will not only contain the difficult climb towards the finish line but also, just before that, the Alto del Cordal of the 1st category!

    The last stage which finishes in Madrid is always a bit particular. Everyone's happy that it comes to an end but the next day it will give a strange feeling anyway that there's no new stage start. The riders will celebrate the end of the Tour of Spain on the roads of this last stage, with a glass of champagne in their hands! This year, the stage is not even 110 kilometers long, including the 9 laps on the final circuit. The start of this stage will be in Leganés.

  3. Bonjour Thomas et merci pour cette présentation,

    Sans doute une question stupide mais à quoi correspondent les pastilles en gris avec 'CP' inscrit dedans?

    Concernant le parcours, on aime ou on aime pas, mais une chose est sure, la course promet d'etre animée.

  4. Super, cette présentation ! Du beau boulot de PRO.
    Merci Thomas.

  5. @marc & Dom & Pierre CROLAIS, ça fait plaisir de lire vos remerciements :). Surtout que je vous avoue avoir eu des doutes un moment sur ma capacité à publier le tout à temps ;-).

    @philou : vous en avez de la chance :-)

    @Dom : il n'y a pas de questions stupides, il n'y a que des réponses stupides ! Les pastilles en gris avec "CP" inscrit dedans correspondent au début des montées, le CP correspondant à -si je ne me trompe pas, mon espagnol n'est malheureusement pas au niveau de mon français :-(- comienzo puerto, donc début de montée. Dans les itinéraires horaires on retrouve la mention correspondante, "C. Pto.".

    Personnellement je trouve ça très bien de mentionner ces informations dans les itinéraires horaires et dans les profils puisqu'au moins ça permet de comprendre à partir d'où on commence à compter la longueur et la pente d'un col ou d'une côte.

  6. @ Thomas : En effet, ça parait évident. Mais une fois qu'on le sait!

    Autre question! : les sprints intermédiaires (S en en vert) comptent pour le classement du maillot vert ou pour un maillot spécifique?

  7. Bonjour Thomas,

    que penses de l'étape empruntant le port Envalira dans le même sens pour la montée et la descente. Après la comédie du pont coupé en 2 d'aujourd'hui, je me demande si on ne risque pas d'avoir un chassé croisé dans ce col. La boucle du sommet est elle assez longue pour empêcher ce type de problème?

  8. Désolé de ne vous répondre que maintenant, n'ayant pas eu le temps de le faire pendant le Tour Poitou-Charentes.

    @Dom : les sprints intermédiaires attribuent des points pour le classement par points (4/2/1 points au sprint intermédiaire alors qu'à l'arrivée de l'étape c'est 25/20/16/14/12/10/9/8/7/6/.... points) et donc pour le maillot vert. Par ailleurs, ces sprints intermédiaires attribuent des bonifications (3/2/1 secondes).

    @Olivier73 : j'y ai pensé effectivement en dessinant la carte, d'autant plus que la voie du retour se fait en descente et sera donc beaucoup plus rapide que la montée et que les routes se croisent assez vite. Soit l'organisateur coupe la route en deux, avec une voie aller et une voie retour, soit ça risque effectivement de poser des problèmes !

  9. La route fait trois voies, elle semble suffisamment large effectivement pour une coupure en deux. Mais je me dis qu'entre le passage au sommet, le début de descente, le passage dans le tunnel, il va s'écouler une bonne dizaine de minutes, pour que les coureurs reviennent sur leur pas.

    De surcroit, du côté andorran, entre la bifurcation avec le tunnel et le sommet il y a environ 4km, 3km de descente puis 3km de tunnel, on peut tabler entre 17 et 20 minutes en tout pour revenir à ce point de bifurcation initial, cela devrait le faire ;)
