The Vuelta a Andalucía – Ruta del Sol begins out with 5 categorized climbs peppering the opening stage from Puente de Genave to Santiago de la Espada. Most necessary is the class 1 Despiernacaballos, a ten.6 kilometre climb crested simply 7.4 kilometres from the end.
On stage 2, the stage descends from Diezma and traverses undulating terrain en path to the quick however punishingly steep climb to the Fortaleza de Mota at Alcalá la Actual. It was right here that Alessandro Covi (UAE Group Emirates) stamped his authority on the race in 2022 solely to lose it to Wout Poels (Bahrain Victorious), who slipped away in a breakaway on stage 4 and put seven minutes into the Italian.
Friday’s third stage between Alcalá de Guadaira and Alcalá de los Gazules, 160.4km in size, has one other brutal kick to the end with even steeper grades than on the day before today.
Stage 4 on Saturday from Olvera to Iznájar is hardly any higher for any sprinters who might need mistakenly confirmed as much as the race. Two class 3 climbs and one class 2 ascent punctuate the ultimate 60km, with the Fuentes de Cesna simply over 10km from the end.
The quick males, if they will recover from the mid-stage class 1 Puerto del Sol and sharp cat. 3 Los Nuñez with 31km remaining will get pleasure from the one flat end of the race on the 183.4km stage from Otura to Alhaurín de la Torre.
