A short but intense mountain stage with a hors catégorie uphill finish. The climbs are:

  1. Km 55.4 – Alto de Hazallanas. 16.3 kilometer-long climb at 5.5% – category 1

“Mountain. Short stage with the main events including a climb up Hazallanas, Monachil and the arrival at Sierra Nevada (2,490 metres above sea-level), making a total of 3,172 metres of slopes. The riders will be traveling at high speed from the beginning and one of the leaders may be in for a tough day. All of them will be thinking about what happened in 2016 between Sabiñánigo and Formigal.”
