Wow, it's all change from 2017. Notably all of Sunday's stages (I suppose the Power Stage as well) are now run in reverse order, making El Condor a hillclimb now rather than a descent, and I think vice versa for Mina Clavero. All the other stages, except for maybe Santa Rosa-San Agustin are either new or modified.

It's not a bad itinerary; it's got some reasonably long stages on day 1, few superspecials and a new format for the Power Stage, but I like to live by the if it ain't broke don't fix it attitude, and I guess it would've worked for this.
