Stage 9, Sunday, August 26: Andorra-Barcelona, 196.3 km (mountain)

Aside from two 3rd-category climbs in the middle of the stage, today’s parcours is downhill almost all the way to Barcelona, in effect,  a mirror image of  yesterday’s, which climbed gradually to Andorra.

However, one more 3rd-category climb and two spikes at the end might make the finish attractive for the classics types, if they can get away from a peloton hurtling toward the first rest day tomorrow.
