Tour of Valencia 2020 Route stage 1: Castellón - Villarreal

Tour of Valencia 2020 stage 1Wednesday 5 February - The Tour of Valencia sets off from Castellón to race to Villarreal in its 1st stage. Adding up to 180 kilometres, the route is tailor-made for a sprint finish.

The route features 1,146 vertical metres, which is really nothing by Spanish standards. The toughest test appears halfway in the form of the Alto de Marianet, a 3.7 kilometres climb at 5.5%. For the rest a lot of rolling roads and, when the finale comes closer, the route levels out.

Villarreal hosted the start of last year’s Queen Stage – won by Adam Yates -, while the 6th stage of the 2017 Vuelta a España took off from the coastal town. A finish is longer ago though. The 1987 Vuelta saw sprinter Alfonso Gutiérrez riding to glory in Villarreal.
