The first half of the race is played out on a lumpy route before the riders reach the Mediterranean. The second half couldn’t be more flat until the riders tackle the punchy finish climb to the weather station above Cullera.
The first 2 kilometres ascend at more than 10%. The following kilometre levels out before it ramps up to 21% just before the finish line.
Tadej Pogacar bested Alejandro Valverde and Dylan Teuns on this finish climb at the 2020 Tour of Valencia.
We’ll update this article in the coming weeks.
