Three years ago Roquetas de Mar hosted a stage finish at La Vuelta. It was a race through the middle mountaisn and Simon Clarke won from the breakaway ahead of Bauke Mollema and Alessandro De Marchi.
This time the coastal town acts as the starting point of a race along the Mediterranean sea. The roads are virtually flat until the route leaves the coast to turn inland near Velez-Málaga.
Shortly after moving through most important city in the Axarquía region the route climbs false flat onto 1 kilometre at 10%. The route then continues false flat onto the Puerto de Almáchar. The 5.1 kilometres climb at 8% peaks out with 15.8 kilometres remaining. The finale is flying descent back to the coast.
Rincón de Victoria never before hosted a stage finish at La Vuelta.
The 10th stage of La Vuelta starts 12.15 and the race is expected to finish around 17.30 – both are local times.
