Individual time trial in Zaragoza, finish at the summit of Cerler...and now a third consecutive test for the cyclists in the 2007 Vuelta. Once again, the mountains provide a dramatic backdrop. On Monday, 10 September, the racers must face a high mountain stage: A 214-kilometre route running from Benasque to Andorra with four climbs worth mountain points. Coll de Fadas (km. 21), Puerto de Prev&Atilde;&copy;s (km. 61), Port del Cant&Atilde;&sup3; (km. will all serve as preludes to the final climb: Arcal&Atilde;&shy;s. <br> <br> The final climb features a terraced climb spanning 15 kilometres, with a 5.6% slope and sustained climbs at an 8.5% incline. The summit is at 2,200 metres altitude and the slopes of Arcal&Atilde;&shy;s will give hope to those cyclists who are natural climbers against the ones who rely on brute strength. <br> <br> Brief History: Angel Camargo of Colombia was the first to triumph at the summit of this ski resort in 1994, but the three subsequent finishes here ended with victories for crack Spanish climbers: Roberto Laiseka won in 2000, Chaba Jim&Atilde;&copy;nez had the best time in 2001, and Francisco Mancebo beat his rivals in a shorter sprint in 2005. On the other hand, Benasque has hosted the start of a Vuelta stage nine times. The last one was in 1998, with victory going to Gianni Bugno in Canfranc.
