Vuelta 2019 route stage 7Friday 30 August 2019 - La Vuelta's 7th stage travels over five mountains from Onda to Mas de la Costa. The distance is 182.4 kilometres and the last climb is a monster with ramps at 21%.

Following a virtually flat section of 80 kilometres the climbs are lined-up in the second half of the race. At kilometre 94.4 the riders crest the Puerto de Marianet before tackling the Puerto de Eslida and Puerto de Aín. 117 kilometres done, 65 kilometres remaining.

After 130 kilometres the riders are back where the 7th stage started – in Onda – before continuing on rolling roads to the foot of the Puerto del Salto del Caballo, where the fight for the stage win is expected to ignite.

The riders crest the Salto del Caballo with 21 kilometres left to race. The descent is broken up into two sections by an uphill kick halfway, and eventually the punchers can go all out on the Mas de la Costa. The final climb is a Wall of 3.8 kilometres with an average gradient of 9.9% and ramps up to 21%.
