Vuelta 2020 Route stage 13: Muros - Mirador de Ézaro
Tuesday 3 November - The 13th stage is perfect for time trialists with puncher's legs. Following 31.9 kilometres on the flat the finish climb kicks in hard. The Mirador de Ézaro is a monster of 1.8 kilometres at 14.6%.
The Vuelta visited the Mirador de Ézaro in 2016, when Alexandre Geniez brought the early break home, but a real clash of titans took place eight years ago. Joaquim Rodríguez, Alberto Contador and Alejandro Valverde battled it out on the insane ramps and crossed the line in that order.
The 2020 Vuelta will see the riders tackle the Mirador de Ézaro one at a time. The ascent is only 1.8 kilometres long with an average gradient of 14.6% and ramps up to 29% the hill is sure to cause damage.
The riders roll down the starting ramp in Muros and enter 31.9 kilometres of Tony Martin-terrain. Perfect roads for guys who can push a big gear. But it does not remain that sweet until the line.
The Mirador de Ézaro may be short, but that will not stop the wall from shattering dreams. Although the steepest ramp (29%) appears in the first half, the second half is toughest with an average gradient of 15.8%.
