Stages Vuelta España 2018 - 8/25/2018



The vuelta 2018 serves the usual menu; explosive stages, tough finishes, a long time trial and plenty of climb labour. Again, there are 8 finishes uphill, of which three are new to the Vuelta: La Alfaguara, Les Praeres and Monte Oiz. The other five are the Caminito del Rey, La Covatilla, La Camperona, Lagos de Covadonga and Andorra Rabassa

After the start with an individual time trial. The first difficulty, the Caminito del Rey, already appears on the second day. And one day after, we get the first real climb with La Alfaguara: more than ten kilometers of ascent reaching slopes of 12%. The Alfaguara is the first of the three peaks climbed for the first time in the Vuelta.

The sixth stage to the Murcia region will take us to La Covatilla. Salamanca's top climb, with its 18 kilometers in length and an average gradient of 5.7% has ramps reaching over 16%. It will make its fifth appearance in the Vuelta a España since its debut in 2002.

After the first day of rest in Salamanca the race will go north to face the end of that second part of the race, with, between Friday and Sunday, finals in La Camperona, Les Praeres and the Lakes of Covadonga, the Asturian summit.

The time trial on Tuesday September 11, with departure in Santillana del Mar and finish in Torrelavega, is the prelude to a tough final week. The day after, the stage finishes on the Monte expects Oiz, the Basque peak of which the final 5 kilometers has an average slope of over 10% with stretches reaching maximum 20% And after a flat stage to Lleida, we head for Andorra, and as we know, there is no flat road in Andorra. The two stages there will be decide who will win the Vuelta.

First we finish up the Bosc de la Rabassa. The one but last Vuelta stage is 105 km short but with the Coll de la Gallina (1st) as the final climb, the Coll de Comella (2nd), Coll de Beixalis (1st), Coll de Ordino (1st) and, again, Beixalis and Comella, it is the queen's stage of this Vuelta.
