Vuelta a Burgos 2020 Route stage 2: Castrojeriz - Villadiego
Wednesday 29 July - The 2nd stage of the Vuelta a Burgos should suit fast finishers. In the course of 168 kilometres of racing the riders face virtually no serious ascents.
Which does not imply that the route is entirely flat. On the contrary. The first half of the route is going either up or down. At shallow gradients, but still. The second half of the route is virtually flat, except for an uphill kick with 15 kilometres left.
Odds are that the race will come down to a bunch sprint. Although a late attack could also turn out to be successful.
The riders approach Villadiego on a long and straight road. Shortly after the flamme rouge the route goes false flat downhill and inside the last 500 metres a right-hander takes the riders onto the home straight.
