Ruta del Sol 2021 Route stage 3: Beas de Segura - Villarodrigo
Thursday 20 May - The Queen Stage of the Ruta del Sol is played out on the third day of action. The 175.1 kilometres route between Beas de Segura and Villarodrigo features six climbs, while the vertical gain adds up to more than 4,600 metres. Uphill finish after a 6.7 kilometres climb at 4.8%.
Taking in a 11.3 kilometres climb to start – Alto de Cañada Catena -, the Queen Stage opens in style. The race continues onto the Puerto de Yelmo: 10.6 kilometres at 6.1%.
A rolling descent leads onto the La Toba climb. It’s 10.4 kilometres long and the average gradient sits at 4.3%. Yet, this statistic is biased since the climb levels out near the top. The steepest stretches go up at 15%.
In La Toba the race is 68 kilometres underway. An ensuing section of about 20 kilometres goes predominantly downhill, although there are some uphill parts also.
After the Alto de Fustal – 15 kilometres at 1.2% – the finale is expected to begin on the Collado de los Yesos. At the top of this 8.6 kilometres climb at 5.4% there are 15 kilometres remaining.
The first part of the remainder goes downhill and when the riders move through Villarodrigo, at an elevation of 865 metres, the finish climb kicks in. The Alto de Onsares is 6.7 kilometres long and the average gradient sits at 4.8%.
