Vuelta 2018 Route stage 16: Santillana del Mar - Torrelavega
Tuesday, 11 September 2018 - Stage 16 of La Vuelta offers the second individual time trial of thus year's edition. Amounting to 32.7 kilometres, the race is being played out in Cantabria and the rolling route runs from Santillana del Mar to Torrelavega.
Departure place Santillana del Mar is famous for its three lies. The town is neither holy (Santa), not flat (llana) and its not located on the sea (mar) either.
The fact that its not holy and not on the sea either will not bother most riders, yet the fact that the route is rolling and not flat at all will be a disappointment to most of them. The route is rather demanding – we are in Spain, who would expect otherwise?
The profile of the route remains of the individual time trial in last year’s Vuelta, although that route was 8 kilometres longer. Chris Froome took the stage win, 29 seconds ahead of Wilco Kelderman and 57 seconds ahead of Vincenzo Nibali.
Former World Champion Oscar Freire and Juan José Cobo were born in arrival place Torrelavega.
