The seventh stage of the 2017 Vuelta a España sees the peloton take a break from major climbs. What the stage lacks in big climbs it makes up for with distance – it’s the longest stage of the race at 207km.

It’s also far from flat, with rolling terrain and the tricky third category climb of Alto del Castillo with only around 12km to go before the finish in Cuenca.

It’s a day that may suit a breakaway, particularly with the lack of top-level sprinters in the race that could gain a stage win.
