Expect the likes of Mike Landa, Bert-Jan Lindeman, Jelle Vanendert, Alessandro De Marchi, Rubén Plaza, Blel Kadri, Pierre Rolland and Fränk Schleck eyeing up a seat in the front group.

Are the escapees reeled in on the closing climb, then it will be up to the big men this Vuelta: Aru, Rodríguez, Chaves, Majka and Dumoulin.

** Alejandro Valverde, Fabio Aru, Nairo Quintana, Domenico Pozzovivo
