Volta a Catalunya 2024 Route stage 6: Berga – Queralt

Saturday 23 March - The riders travel from Berga to the Sanctuary of Queralt on the penultimate day of the Volta a Catalunya. It's the third and last mountainous test in the seven day stage-race.

Berga was not included in La Volta since 1959. Back then, it served as the finishing venue to a mountain stage that was won Antonio Karmany. The Majorcan is a triple winner of the mountains classification of the Vuelta a España

The riders travel to a summit finish in the Sierra de Queralt, which is actually just a stone throw’s away. The race finished near the Sanctuary of Queralt after a 3 kilometres climb at 8%. Obviously, this is expected to be one of the key stages of La Volta, as it takes place on the penultimate day and takes in a substantial elevation gain.

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