Vuelta 2022 Route stage 16: Sanlúcar de Barrameda - Tomares
Tuesday 6 September - The rolling route leading from Sanlúcar de Barrameda to Tomares is 189.4 kilometres long. The 16th stage at La Vuelta is perfect for sprinters. That is, if they survive the two short climbs inside te last 10 kilometres.
Three years ago the Ruta del Sol visited Sanlúcar de Barrameda, a town at the mouth of the Guadalquivir. That race went to an uphill finish in Alcalá de los Gazules, where Tim Wellens climbed to victory on the steep cobbles.
The route of stage 16 takes another direction. The riders head straight north to finish close to Seville. The finale in Tomares is pepped up with two short climbs inside the last 10 kilometres. The first one is 1.5 kilometres long and rises at 6.1% before, while the second one is a short uphill kicker with almost 3 kilometres to go. The home straight runs false flat uphill.
The 2017 Vuelta also saw a Tomares finish. Matteo Trentin sprinted to victory that day.
