Vuelta 2021 Route stage 13: Belmez - Villanueva de la Serena

Vuelta a España 2021 stage 13Friday 27 August - The sprinters must be confused. Are they really racing La Vuelta with this many chances to shine? Yes, they are. Stage 13 travels on the flat from Belmez to Villanueva de la Serena. The race adds up to 203.7 kilometres.

There are zero KOM points on offer on the way from Belmez, Andalucía, to Villanueva de la Serena in the region of Extremadura. The biggest obstacle will undoubtedly be the heat. The summers in both Andalucía and Extremadura are notoriously hot and dry.

La Vuelta never before visited Belmez. Same goes for Villanueva de la Serena.

Given the flat route, a bunch sprint is next to certain. Both winning two stages, Fabio Jakobsen and Jasper Philipsen are the most successful sprinters in this year’s La Vuelta. Philipsen pulled out a few days ago, Jakobsen is still on board.

The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while there are 3, 2 and 1 seconds available at the intermediate sprint.
