Vuelta 2021 Route stage 4: El Burgo de Osma - Molina de Aragón
Tuesday 17 August - At 163.9 kilometres, the 4th stage of la Vuelta travels on gently undulating terrain from El Burgo de Osma to Molina de Aragón. Odds are that wel'll see a sprint finish in the coldest place of Spain.
Both El Burgo de Osma and Molina de Aragón never hosted the Vuelta a España before. The riders penetrate the plains northeast of Madrid. Although the route is not entirely flat, the inclinations are so shallow that there are no KOM points available.
Timing will be crucial for the fast men, as the last kilometre of the race runs slightly uphill.
Located at an elevation of 1,065 metres, Molina de Aragón is one of the coldest places in Spain. In fact, last January the record was set at -25.2°C. On the other hand, it’s August and a possible cold wave will not be the riders main concern. Quite the opposite. A heat stroke is more obvious in temperates easily reaching +35°C.
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.
