Vuelta a España 2017 stage 11 profile

A very tough medium mountain stage with an uphill finish. The two 1st category climbs are:

  1. Km 30.3 – Alto de Velefique. 13.2 kilometer-long climb at 8.6% – category 1
  2. Km 0.0 – Observatorio Astronómico de Calar Alto. 15.5 kilometer-long climb at 5.9% – category 1

“Mid-mountain, with an uphill finale. A day with a 3,434-metre slope that can result in significant differences to the general classification and begin to hint at a possible winner. The final mountain pass is a long one, but not excessively difficult, and it will require consistency in order to conquer Velefique and Calar Alto, two back-to-back 1st category climbs.”
