Vuelta 2022 Favourites stage 16: For fast men #4

Mads Pedersen - Vuelta 2022 Favourites stage 16: For fast men #4foto: Cor VosStage 16 is among the flattest stages of the entire Vuelta. The elevation gain of the route through southwestern Spain does not exceed 1,000 metres. The finale has got Mads Pedersen written all over it.

That said, the finale holds a little surprise up its sleeve. With 10 kilometres remaining the riders tackle a 1.5 kilometres climb at 6.1% and there is another uphill kicker inside the last 3 kilometres, while last kilometre runs false flat uphill.

That’s basically the story of stage 16. The run-up is nothing special. That is, if you don’t pay attention to the scorching temperatures on the road to Tomares, a town just west of Sevilla.
