Lucena is a regular host of the Ruta del Sol. Two years ago stage 2 finished in the town at the center of Andalucia. The race boiled down to a bunch sprint with Juan José Lobato besting John Degenkolb.
The ITT opens with a short climb at 5% before the route continues on gently rolling roads. The intermediate time check is after kilometre 5.9.
Last edition’s ITT was played out on a much longer and hillier parcours. At 21 kilometres, the route took in quite a number of hills, which suited Tejay van Garderen just fine and he took the win.
