Description:
The Vuelta has prepared a special stage for Sunday 16 September: a day that could end up being decisive in the final outcome without even being a mountain finish. It could even be the day that determines how the Vuelta will ultimately develop. The 15th stage of the Vuelta will leave from Villacarrillo and finish in Granada after 201 kilometres and three climbs worth mountain points. <br> <br> The first two, Torre Candela and Blancares, are hardly worth mentioning, since all eyes will be focused on kilometre 181 and the enormously demanding 1st category climb at Monachil, with the summit just 20 kilometres from the finish line in Granada. That distance prevents the use of any teamwork tactics and turns the race into a head-to-head competition among the leaders. <br> <br> Brief History: The Vuelta visits Granada for the fourth consecutive year. The city has now become a point of reference in the great national race and offered spectators around the world the most emotional and decisive moment in 2006, since that was the day that Alejandro Valverde lost the race to Alexandre Vinokourov.
