Vuelta 2020 Route stage 7: Vitoria Gasteiz - Valdegovia

Vuelta a España stage 7Tuesday 27 October - At 160.4 kilometres, the 10th stage of La Vuelta is a challenging race through the hills between Vitoria Gasteiz and Valdegovia.

The race kicks into gear in Vitoria Gasteiz and the first 50 kilometres take place on undulating terrain before the riders drop down to the foot of the first climb. The Puerto Orduña is 7.6 kilometres long and the average gradient sits at 5.1%.

The descent leads onto a more lumpy phase in the race until the flattest part of the route navigates the riders back to familiar terrain. Once again, they drop down to the foot of the Puerto Orduña to tackle the same climb as before on the same side.

Still 18 kilometers to go at the top, 6 of which are on descent. A short kick up leads onto the flat finale.

In the 2018 Tour of the Basque Country Jay McCarthy sprinted to victory in Valdegovia.
