Leganés was the official start town for the final stage of this year’s Vuelta but Segovia worked better for me.
The top of the infamous Angliru, the climb wasn’t as horrific as I’d imagined but nevertheless it was bad enough.
After leaving Oviedo and nearing the top of the Alto del Naranco climb at the end of a very wet ride.
A stunning ride from Burgos to Peña Cabarga on a route that surpasses anywhere I’ve ever cycled before
The top of Alto Estacas de Trueba and the beginning of the most visually stunning descent I’ve ever ridden.
Although today was a flat stage there were still a couple of climbs and this is the top of Alto de Valmala, the second one.
Not long after leaving the municipality of Broto, on the the gentle Puerto de Cotéfablo climb.
On the Puerto de la Bonaigua climb, not steep but long and into a very strong headwind.
