The 14th stage of the Vuelta a España 2022 is celebrated this Saturday, September 3, between Montoro and Sierra de la Pandera, with 160.3 kilometers of route in a new day with a high finish. The stage is clearly divided into two parts, with a very relaxed start where you will fight for the escape and a second part where the mountainous difficulties appear with the final ascent to La Pandera.
