Logroño was the finish of the ITT on the 2017 Vuelta a España. Chris Froome powered to victory, thus laying the groundwork for his only GC win in the Spanish grand tour until now.
The first 80 kilometres are far from flat, but not mountainous either. After Ribafrecha the route ascends to a false flat plateau that leads onto the first proper climb. The Puerto de la Rasa is 9.8 kilometres long and the average gradient sits at 5.3%.
The riders fly down a long descent before getting ready for the grande finale. The Alto de Moncalvillo is a 8.3 kilometres climb at 9.2% with several extremely steep sections in the second half.
La Moncalvillo is an unprecedented climb in La Vuelta.
The intermediate sprint – situated at the base of the Puerto de la Rasa – comes with time bonuses of 3, 2 and 1 seconds, while the first three riders on the line gain 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
