Vuelta 2011, Stage 16 Villa Romana La Olmeda (Palencia) to Haro, 201km (970m)
After a well-deserved rest day and leaving the mountains of Asturias behind, a completely flat new transition day with favour the sprinters to move form the back of the pack to the front and contest for the finish line in Haro. This is the second time in the history of the race that this La Rioja town hosts a stage finish. This forst was in 1966 when Francisco Gabica took his first win.
Villa Romana La Olmeda, in Pedrosa de la Vega (Palencia), one of the most important archaeological sites from Roman times, will receive the cyclists who have endured two tough weeks of competition since the start in Benidorm.by thunderthighs
