Stages Vuelta España 2020 - 10/20/2020
POSTPONED TO OCTOBER 20 BECAUSE OF CORONA-VIRUS!
The foreseen departure in the Netherlands has been cancelled, thereby shortening the race to 18 stages in stead of 21.
Climbing in the Basque Country is immediate with an arrival at the Santuario de Arrate, known from the Tour of the Basque Country. It is the first of 8 uphill arrivals. The Vuelta also visits no fewer than 4 countries, including a trip to Portugal.
In the ninth stage, the Vuelta crosses the border with France to arrive at the Tourmalet via the Portalet and the Aubisque. A ride to look forward to! In the tenth stage, the Puerto de Orduña is climbed twice via a large loop and in stage 11, we finish on the lesser known but steep Alto de Moncalvillo.br/>
We stay in the north of Spain where two difficult stages are on the menu on days 14 and 15. The first with arrival on the Farrapone, the second on the famous Angliru. On the one but last stage, with another arrival uphill on the Covatilla, the cards are finally shuffled.
