Stage 3, April 15: Benavente (Zamora) – Galende (Laguna de los Peces) (Zamora), 157.2 km

Today’s queen stage has only two climbs, both classified as first category.

Riders will first tackle the Alto de Peñón, a 10.2-km climb (6.1% avg, 16% max.) that begins at 101.3 kilometers into the stage.

While this ascent is more impressive on paper, the play for victory will almost certainly come on the climb to Laguna de los Peces, the summit finish.

The finish line comes after 12.2 kilometers of climbing (5.4% avg., 6.5% max.), starting at kilometer 144.8.
