Stage 4 - August 29: Almendralejo - Cáceres, 142 km

Stage 4 is the shortest of the non time trial stages of the Vuelta and is also almost completely flat, so it's odds-on to finish in a big bunch gallop. In theory it is another stage for the fast men although the last the 400 metres are slightly uphill, which favours riders like Valverde and Bettini. Robbie McEwen has showed in the Tour that he is no slouch at uphill finishes either, though. Laurent Jalabert won the stage the last time that the Vuelta visited Cáceres.
