Tour Colombia 2020: The Route
The 3rd edition of Tour Colombia kicks into gear with a TTT in Nairo Quintana's domicile Tunja. The 6-day race never dips below 2,500 metres, while the final Queen Stage serves the decisive Alto El Verjón above Bogotá. The climb to 3,266 metres is 18.1 kilometres long.
Riders have access to an oxygen level of 6% less than at sea and when the road goes up even less. So riders who are born at altitude enjoy a distinct advantage over most others.
The Tour Colombia begins with a TTT of 16.7 kilometres in Tunja. The race takes place on flat to rolling terrain.
The 2nd stage is tailor-made for fast men, while stage 3 is hilly at first before it continues onto 40 kilometres of flat roads.
Stage 4 is almost a carbon copy of the 3rd stage in that it traverses the same roads until the finale. This race ends uphill tough after a climb of 6.5 kilometres at moderate gradients.
Hills in the first part make way for a flat finale in the 5th stage. The race travels to Zipaquirá, where Egan Bernal was born.
At 182.6 kilometres, the Queen Stage is the longest leg on the Tour Colombia. The race will probably boil down to the last 40 kilometres. Firstly the Alto Arepas and shortly after the route moves though La Calera the ascent continues onto Los Patios. The riders move through Bogotá to tackle the Alto El Verjón: 18.1 kilometres at 5.1% with lack of oxygen an extra drawback.
