The calm before the storm. This is how the 17th stage between Ciudad Real and Talavera de la Reina, on Wednesday 19 September, could be defined. It is a day that favours a sprint finish, given that there isn&#039;t a single climb worth mountain points, and in the overall, it seems a more likely backdrop for the great sprinters to shine than the previous stage. <br> <br> After having started from Ciudad Real, the 175 kilometre stage will enter Toledo province before heading for Talavera de La Reina, a city known internationally for its ceramics. <br> <br> Brief History: This is the second time Ciudad Real has hosted the start of a Vuelta stage. The last one was in 2005, when Alessandro Petacchi won the stage. Talavera has also experienced two Vuelta finishes, although the last one was in 1969. Sgarbozza won that day.
