Ruta del Sol 2022: The Route

As always, the Ruta del Sol - aka the Vuelta a Andalucía - serves a mountainous route. No time trial this year, but three uphill finishes will account for selective racing.

At 201 kilometres, stage 1 is the longest of this edition. After five intermediate ascent the finish lies on a 1.3 kilometres climb to the line. Gonzalo Serrano won here two years ago.

The 2nd stage crosses five passes as well, and the finale is also similar. Only shorter and steeper: 800 metres at 10%. Ethan Hayter won here last year.

The sprinters are likely to have it their way in the 3rd stage of the Ruta del Sol, while stage 4 is mountainous in the first part and flat in the second.

The Queen Stage takes place on the last day of action. The race is packed with six climbs, including the ascent to the line, and features roughly 3,900 metres of climbing.
