Vuelta 2017 Route stage 13: Coin - Tomares

Vuelta 2017 stage 13Friday, 1 September 2017 – At 194. kilometres, the route of stage 13 in the Vuelta a España travels from Coín to Tomares. A hilly opening of the race leads to a finale that suits fast men with climbing legs.

In stage 13 the peloton heads to the northwest, straight into the sweltering interior of Andalucia. Passing through the National Parks Sierra de las Nieves and Sierra de Grazalema, the route takes in the Alto de Ardales at kilometre 27.2 before it continues in the direction of Sevilla. A long and rolling downhill section begins at kilometre 75 and the last 80 kilometers are mostly flat. That is, with the exception of the finale. The third kilometre before the line is an uphill section of approximately 5%, while short ramps appear with 1.5 kilometres and 500 metres left to race.

The finish is in Tomares, a city of 25,000 in Seville’s metro area. Last year a Roman hoard was found here during sewer work: nineteen amphoras with 600 kilograms of ancient coins, stamped with inscriptions of Roman emperors Maximian and Constantine.

The first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprint (at kilometre 183.2) comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
