Vuelta a España 2017 stage 9 profile

A flat stage with an uphill finish. The final climb is very tough, which has a 9.1% average gradient – the steepest part is 21%! There are two categorized climbs on the route:

  1. Km 41.9 – Alto de Puig Llorença3. 2 kilometer-long climb at 9.2% – category 2
  2. Km 0.0 – Alto de Puig Llorença. Cumbre del Sol. El Poble Nou de Benitatxell. 4 kilometer-long climb at 9.1% – category 1

“Flat, with an uphill finale. The Levante coast will be the star and will accompany the peloton throughout the entire route. The departure will be a fast one and a breakaway is very likely. But the day may result in teams fighting for a stage victory and not for the general classification.”
