Vuelta a España
Stage 13: Valls - Castelldefels - Stage Details

A bunch sprint on paper but a far more select one than what we will have seen the previous day. The pure sprinters will likely be distanced on the category one climb up to Alto del Rat Penat that tops out 40km from the finish in Castelldefels. With the way Matthews was climbing in Utah, it’s possible that he could remain in contact with a reduced bunch, but we’ll have to see how he deals with the fatigue of his first Grand Tour. If not Matthews, stage 13 could also suit Gerro.
