La Vuelta a Espana
First unprecedented mountain top finish in La Vuelta 2011 and the first stage of three held in Galicia.
La Vuelta returns to Galicia for the first time since the Start in Vigo in 2007 with a highly selective three climb stage with three category 3 mountain passes distributed throughout the day. As in previous days, the first, Fumaces, is only ten kilometres from the rolling start.
The stage finish is at a hitherto unknown mountain pass for the race. La Manzaneda, with a 30 kilometre climb, can cause a shake-up in the general classifications with the emergence of new figures vying for the “Red Jersey.”
