Stage 20 a demanding mountain stage, but this stage is a chance for the time trial specialists, so the end of the 2016 Vuelta is not unlike last year’s edition. Back then, the overall was a batte between Tom Dumoulin and Fabio Aru with the Dutchman taking control in the chrono race before he was bested by Astana and Aru in the mountains.
The Calpe time trial is tailor made for the specialists with a big engine. when the rider reach El Poble Nou de Benitatxell with 11 kilometres done, the race peaks at a modest elevation of 175 metres. The road rolls on for 5 kilometres and then a drop bring them back to an almost entirely flat section that is leading to the line in 20 kilometres.
