Keeping up appearances, the organization put in a 60 meter hill at the beginning of the ride, apart from that the route could not be much flatter. The riders take a spin on a local round of 21 kilometres before the inevitable bunch sprint ignites.

By the way, we are the province La Rioja. Back in the days this province was called Logroño.
You can follow the race here. The finish is expected around 17:40 (CET).
