Vuelta 2019 Route stage 17: Aranda de Duero - Guadalajara

Vuelta 2019 route stage 17Wednesday 11 September - The 17th stage of the Vuelta a España is likely to see a sprint finish. The 219.6 kilometres race kicks off in Aranda de Duero and travels on rolling terrain to Guadalajara.

The route features just one proper climb. Once the flag is dropped the riders navigate the undulating plateau north of Madrid. At kilometres, the Vuelta reaches the highest point of the Alto de Carrascosa at an elevation of 1,380 metres, which is 560 metres higher than Aranda de Duero.

After the Carrascosa the route continues on rolling roads to a likely sprint finish in Guadalajara. The last 3 kilometres run false flat uphill.

The town hosted La Vuelta twice before – in 1999 and in 2005.

The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprint (at kilometre 103.3) comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
