The 2022 Vuelta a España doesn’t offer as much as it might to the sprinters, and they will be keen to seize their opportunity on stage 11. The stage lacks any categorized climbs and while there are short, steep rises along the route, it seems destined to finish in a big bunch gallop. However the fact that the stage skirts the coastline leaves it open to the possibility of sidewinds and possible splits. 

ElPozo is hosting a stage start for the first time ever, having previously been the location for a finish in the 2017 edition. Cabo de Gat is making its debut as a finish venue.
