Tour of the Basque Country 2019 Route stage 3: Sarriguren - Estíbaliz
Wednesday 10 April - Stage 3 in the 'Itzulia Basque Country' is the longest race in this edition. At 191.4 kilometres, the race goes from Sarriguren to a likely power sprint finish near the Santuario de Nuestra Señora de Estíbaliz.
Although a sprint finish is likely, the route still includes quite some vertical metres – after all, we are in the Basque Country. The first climb is crested at kilometer 16.8 in Goñi. The ascent to the village is 8.9 kilometres long and the average gradient is 4.7%.
The route continues to go up and down, but from kilometre 75 onward primarily up to the village Opakua. At the end of a prolonged false flat the last 4.6 kilometres climb at 4.7%. The riders move through Opakua after approximately 130 kilometres.
So, still almost 60 kilometres left to race. First, a descent before the Itzulia Basque Country continues on rolling terrain to the slightly uphill last kilometres to the Sanctuary of ‘Our Lady of Estíbaliz’. The final 2 kilometres go up at approximately 4%.
