Vuelta a España
Stage 19: Peñafiel – La Lastrilla - Stage Details

It’s a funny thing when you get to the final week of a Grand Tour. In week two, riders are dreading each stage start. They wonder how they’re going to make it to end of the race. Come week three, the mentality changes. Suddenly, it’s like ‘Only five days left?! How is that possible?” The fatigue level will be high, so that’s definitely a factor – but sometimes the highest level of racing happens this week because teams without a result will be desperate for a win. We’ll concentrate on stages 17-19 in the third week of racing.
