Stage 16: Leon - Valladolid
The sprinters' prayers have been answered - a dead flat stage for recovery and the chance of a stage win. It's not too long at 162km, and the lack of any climbing whatsoever must really seem like a godsend. With points and the stage win on offer, it's sure to be fast and just a little bit manic along the parcours and at the finish in Valladolid.
