Description:
The cyclists will go from the Albacete town of Hell&Atilde;&shy;n to Torre Pacheco in the Murcia region during the 13th stage on Friday 14 September. The route covers a total of 176 kilometres with one climb worth mountain points: the 3rd category climb at Espu&Atilde;&plusmn;a, 90 kilometres from the finish line. <br> <br> The day also looks like a perfect opportunity for the racers to pay a well-deserved tribute to the ill-fated Mariano Rojas, since the race will pass through Cieza in the early kilometres of a stage in which the teams of sprinters will have to put their work clothes on if they want a group finish at Torre Pacheco. <br> <br> Brief History: Neither Hell&Atilde;&shy;n nor Torre Pachecho has any past history in the Vuelta, so for the third consecutive day, it will finish up in a town taking part in the Spanish race for the first time. This is not the case with the Murcia region, since 2004 saw racing in Caravaca de La Cruz, a day made famous by the crash of Alejandro Valverde and the generosity of the pack towards one of its own.
