The climb to the Mijares pass (first category), 40 kilometers from the finish, as well as the San Juan de la Nava (third category), five kilometers from the finish, should reduce the group of candidates for the stage victory. There will be a foreseeable sprint between the big roosters of the general classification, who know that it is one of the key stages, which will have to overcome the slopes and the heat of Avila in this month of August.
Yesterday’s stage between the towns of Don Benito and Pico Villuercas, with a high finish, left the gas tank not very buoyant among the chasers for today, although they saved their strength. Romain Bardet took the victory yesterday in an exciting stage, where Colombian Miguel Ángel López (Movistar) attacked and cut five seconds off Slovenian Primoz Roglic, who is third overall.
The first half of the stage will be quiet, with no climbs until kilometer 85.1. The riders will reach the first first category pass, the Alto de la Centenera, at 1,350 meters above sea level. There are many slopes and there will be constant ups and downs throughout the day, with the second pass at kilometer 114, second category. This is the Puerto de Pedro Bernardo, at 1226 meters above sea level.
The complete lap stages
The Slovenian already has a win in the first time trial, but in addition he already has an advantage in the general classification. He already takes interesting advantages from his rivals: 14 seconds to Vlasov; 17 seconds to Romain Bardet; 18 to Enric Mas; 20 to the 2018 champion Adam Yates, as well as 21 to Haig, Superman Lopez and Caruso, 25 to Carapaz; 27 to the incombustible Valverde and the challenger Bernal.
Mikel Landa lost a lot of time and will have to react in this second stage. It will give the riders active rest after yesterday’s effort, as it is a flat stage of 166.7 kilometers, between the towns of Caleruega. VIII Centenary of Santo Domingo de Guzmán and Burgos. Gamonal.

What was expected to be one of the so-called transition stages – on Thursday El Gamoniteiru made all the riders’ bones shudder and on Saturday the final stage arrived – has been resolved in a stage with almost 15 minutes ahead of the schedule planned by the organization.
In the big group, although the Deceuninck of Jakobsen did not work, the men of DSM and Bike Exchange gave their all. At almost 30 degrees and with no flat sections during the almost 200 kilometers of Friday.
Those actors, the ones in the fight in the general classification, also suffer this kind of Galician stages, maybe the most. The race ends in Santiago with a time trial that is difficult not to award to Roglic. That makes it necessary to try desperately on Saturday to overturn the general classification. If there has been a transition stage on the eve, it will be appreciated.

But red was not always the color chosen to dress the leader of the Vuelta. It started out orange (1935-36), then white (1941), orange again (1942), and was even red when the race was organized by Diario Ya in 1945, although it later changed to white with a horizontal stripe until 1950.
El Correo organized the Vuelta from 1955 and chose yellow for the leader’s jersey, similar to the one used in the Tour de France. Except in 1977, when the jersey reverted to orange, the yellow jersey remained until 1998 and from 1999 to 2009 it was gold.
