Ruta del Sol 2022 Route stage 5: Huesa - Chiclana de Segura

Sunday 20 February - The 5th stage of the Ruta del Sol is played out on a 168 kilometres route between Huesa naar Chiclana de Segura. Both places lie in the eastern part of Andalucía and the race takes in an elevation gain of 3,900 metres.

Huesa is the birth place of Enrique Martínez Heredia, the promising Spaniard who won the young riders classification of the 1976 Tour de France. His promise never fully blossomed, although he is double Spanish Champion who also won a La Vuelta stage.

It’s a tough course between Huesa and Chiclana de Segura. The riders tackle the Puerto de Tíscar twice, plus the Puerto de los Vilchetes and Alto de Iznatoraf, while the finish also runs uphill.

In short, the final stage of the Ruta del Sol is set to detonate the fireworks.
