Vuelta 2019 Route stage 19: Ávila - Toledo
Friday 13 September - The 19th stage of La Vuelta is played out to the west of Madrid. The 165.2 kilometres route, which runs from Ávila to Toledo, is predominantly flat. Yet, the cobbled finale runs uphill.
Both the start and the finish of the race are in historical cities. Ávila is a fortified city at an elevation of 1,127 metres and the route climbs higher shortly after the start. The riders tackle the Alto de la Paramera, which is a long ascent to 1,145 metres. Not steep though. The Paremera is 18.2 kilometres long and slopes at 1.6%. The hardest kilometres are almost 6%.
The route drops down to travers the plains west of Madrid. With flat to rolling roads for most of the day the route is tailor-made for a sprint finish in Toledo. The finale is demanding though.
Firstly, the riders enter the city from the west to leave it again on a bridge spanning the river Taag. On rolling roads the route continues. Following a flanking maneuver the riders re-enter Toledo. The finale runs firmly uphill on the cobbles of Calle de la Unión leading into the historic centre.
The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprint (at kilometre 134) comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
