Hot breakaway day

On the face of it, this looks like another stage for the sprinters, but after 160 kilometers of almost completely flat roads along the Costa del Sol, the route turns inland to climb the Cat. 2 Puerto de Almáchar (which has frequent double-digit pitches in the last 4.7 kilometers). This hill is followed by 16 kilometers of descending roads to the finish near Málaga. With no guarantee of success, the sprinters’ team will be happy to let a breakaway go clear and contest the finale. It is the sort of stage that could suit riders like Lawson Craddock, Gianluca Brambila of Trek-Segafredo, or Geoffrey Bouchard of AG2R-Citroën. The big guns will be saving their powder for stage 11.
