Stage 19 of the 2017 Vuelta a España could provide a short respite for the general classification contenders on Friday before Saturday’s big mountain showdown.

The day’s highest climb is tackled early on, with the category one Alto de la Colladona tackled within the opening 30km. Following that are three category three climbs, the last of which – Alto de San Martín de Huerces – is positioned 15km from the finish.

The profile shouts ‘break’, but that doesn’t rule out a daring GC rider hunting for extra seconds over their rivals launching an attack over the top of the mountain and into the final descent.

The 2017 Vuelta a España continues on Saturday with a fearsome penultimate day finishing atop the gruelling Alto de l’Angliru climb. Madrid then hosts the final, flat stage on Sunday when the overall winner will be crowned.
