Vuelta 2015 Route stage 6: Córdoba - Sierra de Cazorla

Thursday, August 17, 2015 - In 200.3 kilometres, stage 6 of the Vuelta leads from Córdoba to the Sierra de Cazorla. Great scenery, great stage. The final 20 kilometres are nearly all uphill.

In the first 135 kilometres, the race passes through a typical Spanish landscape. Uphill, downhill. It’s not that the riders are climbing to high elevations, but no metre of racing is flat.

Then comes the 3rd category climb up Alto de Baeza. At the top, the race continues for 20 kilometres on a rolling route before a long descent takes the riders to the foot of the closing climb.

The 2nd category ascent to the beautiful white town of Cazorla is a long one in 20 kilometres, but it is not too steep. That is to say, until the final 4 kilometres. After the climb is interrupted by a short descent the closing section is a tough one – 3 kilometres at 6.3% with a steepest section at 13%.
