Stage 7 - September 7: Calahorra - Zaragoza, 176.3km

On paper this stage should be one for escapes or sprinters given the following day's TT and the early, and only, appearance of a climb. However, riders may have to put their tactical skills on display in the form of 'abanicos' ('echelons' in Spanish). The high winds in the area leading to the finish town of Zaragoza are known to bust all but the weakest of riders.
