Vuelta 2016 Route stage 21: Las Rozas – Madrid
Sunday, September 11, 2016 – Stage 21 is set to conclude edition 71 of the Vuelta a España with a criterium in Madrid. Last year, John Degenkolb powered to victory on the closing circuit.
The last stage is a short one. At 104.1 kilometres, it is only in the first part of the race the riders face some minor hurdles. But it is really nothing when compared to the last few weeks.
With almost 50 kilometres done the riders arrive at the local circuit in the city centre of Madrid. The round is 5.9 kilometres and after the first passage there are nine more left to race. That’s ample opportunity for the sprinters to take a closer look at the finish line.
Departure place Las Rozas lies 20 kilometres northeast of Madrid. With 90,000 inhabitants it is one of many suburbs to Madrid. The Madrid region houses 6.5 million people, making it the third largest city in the European Union after Berlin and London – that is, if you see London as part of the EU…
At the finish wait 10, 6 and 4 seconds for the first three riders, and 3, 2 and 1 seconds can be gained at the intermediate sprint after 59 kilometres.
