Another mass sprint?

After three days in the Burgos area, the Vuelta heads southeast across the plains of central Spain to the small town of Molina de Aragón, dominated by its 10th century castle, two hours east of Madrid. High heat and strong winds can play a part in racing in this part of Castilla-La Mancha, perhaps giving rise to a fast-moving peloton smothering the day’s breakaway; so the chances are for a second mass sprint in three days in which Jakobsen, Philipsen, and Démare are again likely to be the fastest finishers.
