Stage 17 - September 19: Ciudad Real - Talavera de la Reina, 175km

The sprinters that remain in the Vuelta will order their men to give all they have to ensure the race arrives in a bunch gallop as the following days will be too vertical for them. The 17th stage between Ciudad Real and Talavera de la Reina does not present a single ranked climb. A quick finish will allow for the men to check out the town known for its ceramics and to prepare for the following day.
