Vuelta 2020 Route stage 19: Viseu - Ciudad Rodrigo

Vuelta a España stage 19Friday 4 September - In a race of 177.7 kilometres La Vuelta returns from Viseu, Portugal, to home soil in Ciudad Rodrigo. The 19th stage is likely to see another sprint finish.

The first part of the race is played out on a lumpy route. The riders reach the highest point of the day at the Alto de Guarda, a long climb at shallow gradients with its peak at an elevation of 990 metres.

The route descends to 750 metres and the race stays around that altitude for the rest of the day. On rolling roads the riders return to Spanish soil. After crossing the border in Fuentes de Oñoro the last 26 kilometres are a false flat downhill run-in to Ciudad Rodrigo.
