Vuelta 2023 Route stage 4: Andorra la Vella - Tarragona

Vuelta a España 2023Tuesday 29 August - Stage 4 of La Vuelta is 183.4 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 then 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 – 1,700 metres from start to finish. The first classified climb is the Alto de Belltall – 9.6 kilometres at 3.5% – and the second and last follows after the descent. The Col de Lilla is 4.7 kilometres and the average gradients sits at 5.5%.

The riders descends into Vall to continue gently downhill towards the finish line in Tarragona.

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 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
