The Vuelta a España 2020 has been a very close affair between five riders over the first two weeks of the race but the riders are welcomed into the third and final week with a potentially race-deciding 33.7km individual time trial from Muros to Mirador de Ézaro.

Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers) currently holds the overall lead and will start last on the stage, wearing the red skinsuit, but the rider from Ecuador only has a 10 second lead over defending champion, Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma), who is a world-class time triallist.

The last time these two really went up against each other in a Grand Tour overall battle was at the final stage of last year's Giro d'Italia, where Roglič took just over 50 seconds out of the eventual overall winner, Carapaz.

That was after a very long hard race where Roglič did not have any team support throughout the mountains. That has all changed this year with his powerful mountain train and trusty lieutenant, Sepp Kuss (Jumbo-Visma), staying by his side to the end of the stages.

At last year's Vuelta, Roglič put in 1-29 into eventual third place, Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates), 1-38 into second overall Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) and two minutes plus to the rest of the riders battling for GC.

The difference this time is that the final two kilometres of this time trial are up a very steep climb after very little climbing build up, so it could really throw up a surprise result.

Out of all the Grand Tours, you would expect the Vuelta to throw such a steep kick at the end of a pan flat time trial.

The climb also potentially throws the race open to the other five three riders that have a realistic chance of maybe going for the title in the shape of Hugh Carthy (EF Pro Cycling), Dan Martin (Israel Start-Up Nation) and Enric Mas (Movistar).

The last of those three, Mas, probably is the strongest on the TT bike, which is good, because he has the most to catch up on being down at 1-50, over a minute down on everyone above him.

It isn't all about the GC men though, some superb time triallists are also going to be going all-in for a potential stage win, with Rémi Cavagna (Deceuninck - Quick-Step) arguably the big favourite aside from Roglič.

Here are all the start times for stage 13 of the Vuelta a España 2020. The times are local and British readers will have to subtract an hour.

Hi, I'm one of Cycling Weekly's content writers for the web team responsible for writing stories on racing, tech, updating evergreen pages as well as the weekly email newsletter. Proud Yorkshireman from the UK's answer to Flanders, Calderdale, go check out the cobbled climbs!

I started watching cycling back in 2010, before all the hype around London 2012 and Bradley Wiggins at the Tour de France. In fact, it was Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck's battle in the fog up the Tourmalet on stage 17 of the Tour de France.

It took me a few more years to get into the journalism side of things, but I had a good idea I wanted to get into cycling journalism by the end of year nine at school and started doing voluntary work soon after. This got me a chance to go to the London Six Days, Tour de Yorkshire and the Tour of Britain to name a few before eventually joining Eurosport's online team while I was at uni, where I studied journalism. Eurosport gave me the opportunity to work at the world championships in Harrogate back in the awful weather.

After various bar jobs, I managed to get my way into Cycling Weekly in late February of 2020 where I mostly write about racing and everything around that as it's what I specialise in but don't be surprised to see my name on other news stories.

When not writing stories for the site, I don't really switch off my cycling side as I watch every race that is televised as well as being a rider myself and a regular user of the game Pro Cycling Manager. Maybe too regular.

My bike is a well used Specialized Tarmac SL4 when out on my local roads back in West Yorkshire as well as in northern Hampshire with the hills and mountains being my preferred terrain.
