Tour Colombia 2020 Route stage 6: Zipaquirá – Alto El Verjón
Sunday 16 February - At 182.6 kilometres, the final stage of Tour Colombia is the longest and the toughest. The finale of the race is the 18.1 kilometres climb up the Alto Verjón.
The race starts in Zipaquirá in the opposite direction to the previous stage. The Alto Sisga looms at kilometre 55 and after the descent the same climb is tackled on the other side. The route then continues towards Bogotá. A small climb near Guatavita, just south of the Tominé Reservoir, is crested with 70 kilometres remaining.
The riders enter the Eastern Hills, which is a natural boundary east of Bogotá, before a three staged ascent begins with 40 kilometres to go. Firstly the Alto Arepas and shortly after the route moves through La Calera the ascent continues onto Los Patios. The riders fly down to La Paloma and turn right in the direction of Bogotá.
The route follows La Avenida Circunvalar on the eastern outskirts of the Colombian capital before the decisive Alto El Verjón appears. The ascent to an elevation of 3,266 metres is 18.1 kilometres long while the average gradient sits at 5.1%.
The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while three intermediate sprints (at kilometre 43, 77 and 146) come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds each.
