Vuelta 2021 Route stage 5: Tarancón - Albacete

Vuelta a España 2021 stage 5Wednesday 18 August - The fast men are treated on La Vuelta. At 184.4 kilometres, the 5th stage is yet another flat test - possibly even the flattest of this edition.

La Vuelta never visited Tarancón before. The town with a population of 15,000 lies 100 kilometres southeast of Madrid, so in Central Spain.

The route runs in southeasterly direction and moves through Belmonte – famous for its Castle – and the small industrial town of La Roda. No mountains, but long and straight and exposed roads through the sunbaked Spanish interior on the way to Albacete.

Albacete and La Vuelta share a long history. The race started and finished 21 times in the largest city of Castilla–La Mancha. The last time was in 2014, when Nacer Bouhanni outsprinted Michael Matthews and Peter Sagan.
