Vuelta Ciclista a Burgos - Spa - cat. 2.1

15 top class teams - an interesting parcours which includes the legendary Lagunas de Neila - Mercado looks to defend the jersey he won last year ahead of US Postal's José Luis Rubiera who both ride again.

THE STAGES

Stage 1 - August 12: Burgos - Medina de Pomar, 156 km - Three metas volantes - but basically a course that descends all the way to Medina.

Stage 2 - August 13: Frias - Miranda de Ebro, 172km - Two early climbs with all three metas volantes in the first valley. The Portillo de Busto Cat two at 120 kilometres, then a dead flat run in.

Stage 3 - August 14: Peña Aranda de Duero - Aranda de Duero, 18km TT - flat stage for the men against the clock.

Stage 4 - August 15: Huerta del Rey - Lagunas de Neila, 165km - 4 classified climbs before the riders tackle the legendary Lagunas de Neila - one of the toughest climbs in Europe - make sure you set the video!

Stage 5 - August 16: Castrojeriz - Burgos, 172km - third cat climb just before the finish allows a one last gasp effort for those who think they can still win.
