thomas de gendt Volta a Catalunya 2019 Route stage 5: Puigcerdà – Sant Cugat del VallèsFriday, 29 March 2019 - The 5th stage of the Volta a Catalunya travels from Puigcerdà to Sant Cugat del Vallès, a suburb of Barcelona.

Puigcerdà is located at an altitude of 1,200 metres in the Pyrenees and it has been 34 years since the Volta a Catalunya last visited the border town. Only a stone’s throw from France Sean Kelly took the win in 1985.

No Puigcerdà finish in 2019 though. Instead, the riders set off from Puigcerdà to travel to Sant Cugat del Vallès, an affluent town just north of Barcelona. Its altitude is 124 metres so overall the race runs downhill.

Last edition’s 3rd stage ran from San Cugat to Camprodon. Thomas De Gendt soloed to victory and the leader’s jersey.
