Vuelta 2023 Route stage 4: Andorra la Vella - Tarragona

Vuelta a España 2023Tuesday 29 August - Stage 4 of La Vuelta is 184.6 kilometres long. The flat to undulating route is expected to come down to a bunch sprint in the streets of coastal town Tarragona.

The riders clip into their pedals in Andorra’s capital to leave the dwarf state and, subsequently, the Pyrenees on a false flat dowhill. After some 50 kilometres they enter a more undulating phase in the race.

Two hills inside the last third of the route account for most climbing metres, although the amount is still limited – 1,800 metres from start to finish. The first classified climb is the Alto de Belltall – 9.3 kilometres at 3.7% – and the second and last one follows right after the descent. The Col de Lilla is 4.9 kilometres and the average gradient sits at 5.2%.

The riders descend into Vall to continue gently downhill towards Tarragona. It’s 30.6 kilometres from the Lilla summit to the finish line.

La Vuelta last finished in Tarragona in 2017. It came down to a bunch sprint and Matteo Trentin took the spoils.

The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprint comes with 6, 4 and 4 seconds.
