Vuelta a España 2017 stage 20 profile

A short but very tough stage which will end atop Angliru, with its steep slopes up to 23 percent, one of the most feared climbs by the pro peloton. The categorized climbs are:

  1. Km 38.0 – Alto de la Cobertoria. 8.1 kilometer-long climb at 8.6% – category 1
  2. Km 21.1 – Alto del Cordal. 5.7 kilometer-long climb at 8.6% – category 1
  3. Km 0.0 – Alto de L’Angliru. 12.5 kilometer-long climb at 9.8% – category H

“Mountain. Short stage, but very tough. La Vuelta winner may be determined at the Alto de l’Angliru, as was the case in 2011 between Bradley Wiggins and Juanjo Cobo. It is the last stage and the riders will give it their all, so we are in for a good show.”
