Vuelta a España 2013 Stage 4 is between Lalín / a Estrada and Fisterra. The length of the course is 189 km. The stage is listed as Mountains with Summit Finish, but not so mountainous in fact. It ends with a short but steep uphill, like stage three, so it’s suitable to the puncheurs.
The fourth stage of the Vuelta will also feature a route commonly referred to as a “leg breaker”. The final part of the stage will again spike up although it won’t be challenging enough to result in significant changes in the classification. In theory, all leaders should be able to complete this stage without too much trouble. The stage will consist of 186 kilometers and will end at the finish line located in Fisterra “el Fin del Mundo” (The end of the Earth).
