Stage 3 - August 28: Córdoba - Almendralejo, 220 km

The longest stage of the race has two third category climbs in the first 30 kilometres, which limits the opportunities for escapees as there is a long way to go after these springboards. The final kilometre is completely flat, but has a couple of nasty bends that are tailor-made for the handling skills of Robbie McEwen. Expect to see Davitamon-Lotto on the front for their team sprinter.
