Tour of Valencia 2020 Route stage 4: Calpe - Altea
Saturday 8 February - The Queen Stage of the Tour of Valencia is 156 kilometres long and includes 2,884 vertical metres. Following three intermediate ascents the finish climb to Fuente de la Barca above Altea is a killer of 5.3 kilometres at 11.2%.
Last year’s Vuelta a España saw an unexpected finish in Calpe. Attacker Nairo Quintana took the spoils in a group with eventual winner Primoz Roglic also on board.
The Tour of Valencia’s 4th stage sets off from the coastal town. Shortly, the route turns inland. The riders face a mountainous day with two climbs to roughly 1,000 metres in the first 60 kilometres. The third intermediate ascent is crested with 50 kilometres remaining, although the stage really comes down to the finish climb in the Sierra de Bernia.
Starting in Altea the final haul up is 5.3 kilometres long. The average gradient sits at 11,2%, while the steepest stretches go up at 24%. The first part of the climb is freshly paved, but it consists of rough concrete under the top.
