Vuelta 2014 Route stage 3: Cádiz – Arcos de la Frontera
Monday, August 25 – Stage 3 of the 2014 Vuelta is a race in 189.8 kilometres, heading from Altimetría Cadiz to Arcos De La Frontera. The first few categorized mountains are in today’s road book, all in category 3.
The first part of the ride is as flat as can be. It’s only in the middle part the riders have to show their strength. In 70 kilometres four cols of the 3rd category await them. The climbs are not steep, but their total length of more than 40 kilometres could be hard for the non-climbers. The top of the last climb is 46 kilometres from the finish.
After this intermezzo a long descent follows, which is interrupted by a another small climb at about 10 kilometres from the finish line. From 1800 to 300 metres before the finish the road goes uphill with a modest 4,5 %, followed by some downhill to the finish.
Arcos de la Frontera is a typical white Andalucian town, picturesquely built atop of a cliff.

The finish is expected around 17:40 (CET).
