Vuelta a España 2017 stage 8 profile

Another hilly stage, the toughest climb is very close at the finish. The three categorized climbs are:

  1. Km 88.4 – Puerto de Biar. 6.1 kilometer-long climb at 3.4% – category 3
  2. Km 72.0 – Puerto de Onil. 7 kilometer-long climb at 3.8% – category 3
  3. Km 2.9 – Alto Xorret de Catí. 5 kilometer-long climb at 9% – category 1

“Mid-mountain, with an uphill finale (the finish has been changed, it will be a downhill after a 1st category climb). Stage with a classic Vuelta finale and a new test for the leaders. The last climb, with slopes of inclinations over 20%, will not make much of a difference to the general classification, but it will add up to the times already obtained in Andorra and in the Ermita de Santa Lucía.”
