Vuelta a España
Stage 12: Maella - Tarragona - Stage Details

A bunch sprint is likely in Tarragona, and we have this stage earmarked for Howard or Matthews. A category three ascent at the mid-point of the stage could split the peloton slightly, but the sprint teams, like ours, have plenty of time to get the bunch back together and under control before the finish. Because we’re focused on putting in a really good effort here, we have extra incentive to treat stages 10 and 11 as on the bike rest days.
