Vuelta 2019 Favourites stage 4: For pure sprinters

Sam Bennett 2019 - Vuelta 2019 Favourites stage 4: For pure sprintersThe 4th stage of La Vuelta rolls out the red carpet for the fast men. Just one doable climb inside the last 35 kilometers before the rest of the route is as flat as can be. (Slideshow route/profile)

The 4th stage of the Vuelta a España is almost a carbon copy of the usual last stage of the Tour of Valencia. Also featuring the Puerto de Oronet with around 35 kilometres out, that race finishes in Valencia, while the 4th stage of La Vuelta goes to El Puig, 20 kilometres to the north. The profiles are virtually the same.

Last February, Dylan Groenewegen stormed to victory in Valencia. The Dutchman is not racing the Spanish, but his fellow fast men are likely to come to the fore.

Sam Bennett is the sprinter to watch. Recently, the Irish national champion won the first three stages on the BinckBank Tour.
