After a rare sprint stage, the Vuelta a España returns to all-out climbing with the first of two consecutive huge summit finishes.
With the long time trial on the horizon after the rest day, stage 14 and 15 could be the best chance for those trying to topple Chris Froome (Team Sky) from the overall lead by going on the attack.
Saturday’s 14th stage runs 175km to an especial category summit finish, the first of the race. The peloton will have to tackle some arduous terrain beforehand though, with much of the stage uphill and a category three and two along the way.
Breakaway’s have been very successful at this Vuelta, but would they be able to hold off some very determined GC riders who could be eyeing a stage victory along with some time gains.
