Hola and welcome to the Cyclingnews live coverage of stage 10 of the Vuelta a Espana.
The sun is shining in northern Spain for what should be a stunning stage in the hills and coast roads of Cantabria.
The 185km stage 10 features just one cat-3 climb but the road tips and rolls on or near the coastline, making for a testing day in the saddle for the sprint teams hoping to win in Suances.
The finish should favour the strongest rather than the fastest riders in the bunch because the last kilometre has an average gradient of 4.5%.
The riderd have left the start area and the stage will soon begin.
