Vuelta 2015 Favourites stage 9: Gentlemen puncheurs, load your guns
Stage 9 is mostly flat, sometimes hilly, except for Alto de Puig that's on the menu twice. The last climb up the steep ramps is in the finale. Totalling 4.1 kilometres, the toughest second part opens with the maximum gradient of 19%. Up to the puncheurs! (Slideshow route/profile)
Expect the troops of Valverde to be in control today to reel in the escapees as the arrival is tailor-made for their 35-year old leader.
*** Alejandro Valverde, Chris Froome, Joaquim Rodriguez
** Fabio Aru, Mikel Landa, Daniel Navarro
* Esteban Chaves, Domenico Pozzovivo
