Break or a sprint? Watch out for riders from a team beginning with 'E' says Geraint Thomas

This afternoon sees another potentially intriguing stage that on paper should result in a bunch finish, but only if the sprinters' teams manage to keep a breakaway in check. That's because the Category 2 Alto de San Jerónimo figures around 12 kilometres from the end on a closing loop that heads out of Cordoba then back into the Moorish city for the finale. If any breakaway riders have a decent lead heading up that ascent, they could go all the way.

GT's tips

"Again, a breakaway could do well today, but also attacks coming out of the peloton, teams like Euskaltel who always get stuck in on little climbs. I think it could be another exciting finish."
