Volta a Catalunya 2022 Route stage 3: Perpignan – La Molina

Wednesday 23 March - The Volta a Catalunya presents its first mountain top finish on the third day of action. The race sets off from Perpignan to finish in La Molina after a 12.1 kilometres finish climb.

The summit finish in La Molina was included on the Volta a Catalunya in the years 2014-2019. Miguel Ángel López (2019), Alejandro Valverde (2018, 2017), Daniel Martin (2016), Tejay van Garderen (2015) and Joaquim Rodríguez (2014) were victorious in the Pyrenees ski resort.

The La Molina climb is not the hardest climb in the world – far from it. The first part is 9 kilometres long and goes up at 6%. Following a passage in La Molina the route continues with a short drop and a 2 kilometres climb at 4% to the line. From base to finish the climb totals 12.1 kilometres and averages 4.3%.

Further details of the Perpignan-La Molina stage will be unveiled at the official route presentation scheduled for early 2022.
