Next up is the Puerto de Linares: 7.7 kilometres at 5.7%. With its crest at 1,660 metres, this is the highest point of the day. The race is 36.5 kilometres underway.
On rolling roads the route descends gradually to 630 metres. Still 35 kilometres and two more climbs to go.

The route of La Vuelta’s 6th stage runs through the Sierra de Gúdar, a remote mountain chain with stunning nature.
