    About Santillana del Mar It has been 10 years since the last time La Vuelta rode through the cobblestone streets of Santillana del Mar. The Cantabrian locality hosted the 10th stage finish-line of La Vuelta 2006 but this will be its first time hosting a departure. Idyllic natural surroundings, impressive cliffs overlooking the sea and unique architecture have made this municipality a Historical-Artistic complex, an outstanding representative of Romanesque and Renaissance buildings.

  • Day: 2 - Llanes - Lagos de Covadonga (Distance: 46 km. Ascend: 1.600 m).

     Vuelta a España stage: Individual time trial from Santillana del Mar to Torrelavega (32.7k)


    About this stage: this is an outline for specialists. The 32,7 km route and the terrain will be perfect for those time-trial specialists who survived the Asturias-Leon triptych to make significant differences to the general classification with regards to the climbers during the final stretch.

    Our day: after breakfast we will take a transfer (about 45 min) to the beautiful coastal town of Llanes. From Llanes we will cycle up to the Lagos de Covadonga (Distance 46 km. Accumulated climb: +1.600 m/-518 m ). Lagos de Covadonga is one of the most popular and mythical climbs throughout the history of La Vuelta.

    About this stage: Completely flat stage. Some escapes may take place and it will be up to sprinters and their teams to neutralise them and to position themselves in the lead for the Lleida finish-line. The peloton's exhaustion and increasing weakness will play an important role.
