The race hits the windy plains across central Spain to Leon. It's a flat stage, but the hairdryer winds at this time of year can wreak havoc with the peloton. Smart GC riders will stay close to the front in case the race splits into echelons. German Marcel Wust is the only rider who has won this stage twice and compatriot Erik Zabel will be looking to match his record after winning here in 2001.

Coming!
