Volta a Catalunya 2017 Route stage 4: Montferrer - Igualada
Thursday, 23 March 2017 - The route of stage 4 in the Volta a Catalunya amounts to 136.3 kilometres. The race runs from Montferrer to Igualada and could be for sprinters and escapees alike.
Update: Due to weather conditions (snow) the race doesn’t start in Llívia, as was planned, but in Montferrer, some 60 kilometres down the road. Underneath text pictures the orginal route, which amounted to 194.3 kilometres.
On rolling roads the route descents in the first half of the race from an elevation of 1,200 metres to some 400 metres. The second half takes in more climbs. Just after the halfway point the riders face a 3.3 kilometres climb at 5% and with 15 kilometres remaining a 3 kilometres hill at 5.7% is crested.
The route of stage 4 in the Volta a Catalunya suits sprinters with good climbing skills. But you’ll never know how a race unfolds, especially in Catalonia with its harsh terrain. Escapees could turn out on top also. In last year’s edition, both Wout Poels and Alexey Tsatevich took an early break home.
The route features two intermediate sprints (at kilometre 6.1 and at kilometre 157.5), both with time bonuses of 3, 2 and 1 seconds. The first three riders on the line take 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
