Description:
The 16th stage, starting in Ja&Atilde;&copy;n and finishing in Puertollano, is the first of six days of racing in the final week. This week begins with a rest day on Monday, 17 September. The race returns to the matter at hand on Tuesday with a relatively short but demanding stage of 165 kilometres. <br> <br> Perhaps it will not be a decisive day for the favourites, but a pair of 2nd category climbs ensures that no one will call it a transitional day, either. The 2nd category climb at Andujar Natural Park (km. 76). a 3rd category ascent at Sierra Madrona (km. 102), and the concluding 2nd category climb at Rehoyos (km. 118) will complicate life for the sprinters, so this day will be perfect for the &quot;stage hunters&quot; to seek victory. <br> <br> Brief History: The Vuelta is already very familiar with both Ja&Atilde;&copy;n and Puertollano. In 2006, Ja&Atilde;&copy;n hosted the start of a stage that was won by Jos&Atilde;&copy; Luis Arrieta and Puertollano witnessed a finish in 2005, on a day that concluded with a mass sprint that served to embellish Alessandro Petacchi&acirc;
