Where's that GPS?
Stage 9: Orihuela. Ciudad del Poeta Miguel Hernández / Cumbre del Sol. El Poble Nou de Benitatxell, 174 km
Much like yesterday’s stage, Stage 9 does not really become all too interesting until you reach the last climb of the day, an uncategorized 500m uphill sprint. It’s not inconceivable that a breakaway might be allowed to play the string out on this stage as well as long as no one in the break threatens anyone on GC.
I’m thinking De Gendt here…or perhaps Contador?
