The Vuelta’s 6th stage leads to Mar Menor, which is Europe’s largest salt water lagoon. The route takes in some passable hurdles that by no means should worry fast finishers. Moreover, the 15 kilometres are played out on the flat and sprint teams have plenty of time to organize their troops. It is even better than that as the Cuesta de Cedacero is the last KOM climb with its peak 50 kilometres before the line.
