Vuelta 2019 Route stage 12: Circuito Navarra - Bilbao

Vuelta 2019 route stage 12Thursday 5 September 2019 - The 12th stage of the Vuelta a España runs from the Circuito de Navarra near Los Arcos to Bilbao. The hilly route amounts to 175 kilometres.

The last time that Bilbao featured in the Spanish grand tour was in 2016. Jens Keukeleire sprinted to victory ahead of Maxime Bouet.

The last World Tour stage winner in Bilbao is Primoz Roglic. The Slovenian jumped clear in the 2017 Tour of the Basque Country with 3 kilometres. He held off the chasing peloton and won the race 3 seconds ahead of Michael Matthews.

Stage 12 of La Vuelta could turn out to be an opportunity for the likes of Roglic, who happens to be a fast descender. Following a race with a string of intermediate climbs – especially in the last 40 kilometres – the stage ends with a descent of 7 kilometres to the line.
