Vuelta 2019 Route stage 4: Cullera – El Puig

Vuelta 2019 route stage 4Tuesday 27 August - The 4th stage of the Vuelta a España starts in Cullera to finish in El Puig. At 175.5 kilometres, it is one of the flattest routes of the Spanish grand tour in 2019, so a bunch sprint is the most likey outcome.

Cullera is a popular seaside resort south of Valencia. The riders mostly travel on rolling roads. The Puerto del Oronet is an exception. The climb to the top is 5.8 kilometres and the average gradient sits at 4.5%. The Oronet is crested at kilometre 129.5 and after the descent the route is flat for the last 20 kilometres.

The route forms a circumferential loop around Valencia. The finish is in El Puig, 15 kilometres north of the third largest city in Spain.

Winning three stages, Elia Viviani was the most successful sprinter on last year’s Vuelta. The Italian is not on the start list of this edition.

The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprint (just before Puerto de Oronet) comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.

The race starts at 13.19 and is expected to finish around 17.35 – both are local times.

Take a look at the favourites to win the 4th stage of La Vuelta.
