Vuelta 2022 Favourites stage 13: Fast finishers in tricky finale
image: Cor VosStage 13 of the Vuelta is never entirely flat. But there are no real climbs either. So fast finishers could give it a shot. Yet, they need to realise that the finale is tricky...
Pure sprinters may be struggling in the last 6 kilometres. The finale runs predominantly false flat uphill, sometimes a little steeper. So, a sprint of a reduced peloton is a realistic option. Yet, if the teams of the sprinters don’t want to control the breakaway, the race could also pan out differently. A sprint of attackers for instance.
On paper, things look promising for the likes of Danny van Poppel and Mads Pedersen. Riders with fast legs, even after a tiring race with a lot of short climbs.
