One last stage with a target climb



Cyclists will be at the finish line around 5:30 p.m

Today, the last mountain stage is scheduled for the Cycling Race across Spain. It is a route with a steep final climb, but it will not be as demanding as on Wednesday, when Primož Roglič won.

Cyclists will have to overcome five categorized climbs, three of which are first category. Among them will be the 8.3 km long final climb to Puerto de la Cruz de Linares with an average gradient of 8.6%. Many sections have a double-digit gradient, only the final 1.5 km will be slightly easier.

It will be especially interesting to see the triathlon of the members of Jumba Visma. The American Sepp Kuss is eight seconds ahead of the Dane Jonas Vingegaard in the total, Roglič is 1:08 minutes behind.

The stage will start at 12:55 p.m. and end around 5:30 p.m.

On Friday, there is a flat stage. The final winner will be determined by Saturday’s eventful stage with ten categorized climbs of the third category. On Sunday, it’s time for the parade of champions to Madrid.
