Volta a Catalunya 2023 Route stage 6: Martorell – Molins de Rei

Saturday 25 March - The penultimate stage of the Volta a Catalunya travels from Martorell to Molins de Rei.

Both starting and finishing venue have been absent from the Catalan road race for decades. La Volta last visited Martorell in 1994 and Italian Massimo Donati took the spoils in the stage, that both started and finished in the town on the confluence of l’Anoia and El Lobregat.

Martorell and Molins de Rei are both situated on the river El Lobregat and it’s only 15 kilometres from A to B. Obviously, the riders take a detour.

The Volta a Catalunya visited Molins de Rei once before. Twenty years ago it served as the starting venue of a 13.1 kilometres ITT to Vallvidrera, a neighbourhood of the Sarrià-Sant Gervasi district of Barcelona. That stage was won by José Antonio Pecharromán ahead of Roberto Heras.

The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while intermediate sprints come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
