The peloton returns to Villarreal for the start of the Queen Stage of the La Vuelta a la Comunidad Valenciana (as the Spaniards call the race). The route takes in three intermediate KOM climbs: Alto de Culla (11.3 kilometres at 4.8%), La Bandereta (4.4 kilometres at 6.7%) and La Sarratella (10.7 kilometres at 3.9%).
The finale is played out on the slopes below the Ermita de Santa Lucía y Sant Benet. The 2017 Vuelta also visited this place in 2017. The day before the successful Marczynski break Alexey Lutsenko climbed to victory near the hermitage.
Shortly after the passage through coastal town Alcossebre the final haul up appears. It is a 3.4 kilometres toil with an insane first half. This section comes with a whooping average gradient of 14.7%, while the full Santa Lucía hill slopes at 9.7%.
