Vuelta 2021 Favourites stage 4: For power sprinters

Tom Pidcock - Vuelta 2021 Favourites stage 4: For power sprintersfoto: Cor VosThe 4th stage traverses the sizzling hot plains of central Spain from El Burgo de Osma to Molina de Aragón. The rolling route climbs false flat to the line in the last kilometre.

The gradient is far from excruciating, around 3%, but it’s plain to see that it will effect the sprint. Timing is going to be a big thing in Molina de Aragón. Possibly, a late attack could mess things up for the sprinters.

Throughout the day, the riders traverse the Mesata Central – or, Inner Plateau – of Spain. The route undulates between 800 and 1,000 metres above sea level.
