Vuelta a España 2017 stage 5 profile

A medium mountain stage with an uphill finish. There will be five categorized climbs: km 151.9 – Alto del Desierto de las Palmascategory (2nd category), km 120.4 – Alto de Cabanescategory (3rd category), km 88.1 – Coll de la Banderetacategory(2nd category), km 50.5 – Alto de la Serratellacategory (2nd category), km 0.0 – Ermita Sta. Lucía. Alcossebre. (3rd category). “The terrain will be a “leg-breaker” from the beginning. The climbs will not be excessively difficult, but they will wear down the peloton so that the first uphill finish at the Ermita de Santa Lucía, will be a spectacular one. It will be a battle to the end and the 2nd category climb at Serratella will be a decisive one, though differences among the strongest riders will be minimal.”
