Vuelta 2018 Route Stage 6: Huércal Overa – Mar Menor (San Javier)

Vuelta 2018 stage 6Thursday, 30 augustus 2018 - With the 6th etappe La Vuelta a España will be leaving Andalusia for a short while. The leg starts in Huércal-Overa and then travels San Javier for a flat finish near the famous Mar Menor salty lagoon in Murcia. The route amounts to 153 kilometres.

Stage 6 is a likely sprint stage. Which doesn’t mean the route is entirely flat. En route the riders are to crest the Alto de Garrobillo and the Alto Cuesta de Cedacero, both 3rd category ascents.

Shortly after the flag had been dropped the course heads to the coast and the riders move through Aguilas, Mazarròn and port city Cartagena north to Europe’s largest salt water lagoon, Mar Menor. The last 20 kilometres of the route are entirely flat, so that’s plenty of time for the sprint teams to organize their troops.
