Stage eight on Saturday, 8 September will be the first date for the time trial specialists. In addition, it will be an ideal opportunity for the true specialists, since the distance of 52 kilometres is perfect for road racers to separate themselves from the climbers. <br> <br> The day will start in Carinena and finish in Zaragoza, after tracing through a slightly downhill landscape in a stage that breaks with the usual pattern: start and finish of the time trial in the Aragon capital. The wind direction is also destined to play an important role. In the event of a frontal wind, the time differences among the favourites will be much greater. If it blows from behind them, the climbers will have some hope to cling to. <br> <br> Brief History: Unlike Zaragoza, which can boast of its participation in the Vuelta like very few other Spanish cities, Carinena has never hosted the start of a Vuelta stage before. The capital of Aragon also has a long history concerning time trials. Zaragoza has hosted seven time trials. The last one was in 2003, with Isidro Nozal emerging as the winner in a Vuelta in which the Cantabria native would only surrender the Golden Jersey at the Abantos time trial.
