As usual, you use and take this on an as-is basis, no warranty, etc. If you want to check it's legit then open it up in any text-editor and you can inspect the code. It's as accurate as we can make it (we'll be using these calendars ourselves) but we can't guarantee that it is error-free. If you spot any mistakes then do please let us know through the comments.

The entries include listings for intermediate sprints and for climbs. The listings follow this format, as seen on stage 4:

160.6km. Sprints: 111.9km (Haro,. Av de Sto Domingo de la Calzada), 131.0km (no location listed). Climbs: 51.7km Puerto de Orduña, 605m to 910m over 7.7km at 7.8%, C1; 160.6km Estación de Valdezcaray, 695m to 1540m over 13.4km at 5.20%, C1.
That means the stage is 160.6km long and the first intermediate sprint is at Haro, 111.9km into the stage. The first climb comes at 51.7km into the stage. It is the Puerto de Orduña, it rises 605m to a maximum altitude of 910m, is 7.7km long, has a gradient over that of 7.8%, and is classed as Category 1. The second climb is the Estación de Valdezcaray and it comes 160.6km into the stage, etc.

We'll update if and when we have more detail. In the meantime, enjoy.
