    2010 Vuelta a Espana: Stage 8 - Villena Xorret de Catí 190.0 km

    The stage starts in Villena and comes back to Xorret del Catí – very closed to Villena – after 190 km with five mountain passes!: Onil (3rd category-km 24), Tudons (2nd category – km 96), Torremanzanas (2nd category – km 123), Carrasqueta (2nd category – km 152) and Xorret del Catí (1st category), with its famous ramps over 20% and the small final descent until a finish line where riders like José María Jiménez (born in Ávila) and Gustavo César Veloso) have been already winners of the stage.
