Like yesterday but without the sharp kick at the end that gave us an interesting ten minutes. Short - 167km; there is another uphill finish but it is tame compared to yesterday. The last 750m climbs steadily about 50 m - enough to take the edge of a pure sprinters last dash; but we don't have any of those - seems perfect for Sagan, Degenkolb etc.


The stage profile is what I look for in an easy ride - not what I look for in a GT stage; but things will be looking very much upwards in a couple of days



From Google street view it seems that the organisers have managed to choose some pretty shoddy roads with nice pinch points in the run around Sevilla . Although Parca Maria Luisa (which if I can read their terrible map correctly the race passes on three of its sides) would be a fantastic place to watch from
