Vuelta 2020 Route stage 9: Castrillo del Val - Aguilar de Campoo
Thursday 29 October - Although the 9th stage of la Vuelta is not entirely flat, the race doesn't come with any KOM points either. At 157.7 kilometres, the race from Castrillo de Val to Aguilar de Campoo should come down to a sprint finish.
Stage 12 is the first leg of a duo of sprint stages. Last year’s Vuelta served four sprint finishes with both Sam Bennett and Fabio Jakobsen winning two.
Castrillo del Val is located in Burgos at an elevation of 855 metres and Aguilar de Campo at 908 metres. Those are basically the perimetres of the elevation on stage 12, although the section between kilometre 30 and 60 takes place at 790 metres.
The intermediate sprint – at kilometre 92.4 – comes with time bonuses of 3, 2 and 1 seconds, while the first three riders on the line gain 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
