Vuelta 2013 route

19 Oct 2012 13:10

It's going to start in a place like this:

It's called a "batea". A tray where people in Galicia raise mussels. The first stage will be a Team Time Trial in "Villanova de Arousa" a beautiful place with a lot of beaches you could watch in Vuelta 2012.

It's planned another stage in Galicia with this final:

It's also not stupendously Unipublictastic either, if they actually finish at the spot in the image the last kilometre or so will be relatively flat, after a two-stepped climb which gets pretty steep at times. Nevertheless, it's only 120m up or so. This is likely to be more Cauberg than Ézaro.

Of course, now I've said that they'll asphalt a parking place up at the top of the hill and add some sections of 20%+ up there.

Looks like a good chance for Phil, Valverde or Sagan to snatch the leaders jersey for the first week.

Sad to hear there will be another TTT start though. I prefer a real stage or a prologue to kick things off...

Looks like a good first stage, always have liked it when they have a uphill finish to start off a GT.

Any chance of Unipublic taking a detour to a certain climb in Germany that peaks at 38-42%? :p

That finale up to the lighthouse looks really nice, views etc. Londogorta looks horrible (gradients).

Maybe wait another year for Angliru? 99, 00, 02, 08, 11..

Starting from Galicia, Angliru would wind up being about stage 4, so we damn well ought to be waiting another year. Otherwise we could end up with another 2007 route.

Cyclists come in 9 of 9 boat to leave the trough

No excuse logistics worth. The organization of the Tour is ready to put all eggs in one basket so that the output of the next edition of the Spanish race is inscribed in the retina of all recreational cyclists.

The announcement that the team time to start the 2013 Tour will start from a tray, located in the sea off the port of Vilanova de Arousa, some questions left open by the technical difficulty involved. But the organization has already taken into account the obstacles with which you can visit this innovation, and seems to have tied all fringes to ensure that everything goes as planned.

The pan will be connected to the port via a walkway leading to onshore cyclists. But the inability of this gateway to be used by the teams still head to the exit ramp that meshes require a second access road to the pan.

The solution chosen for this will be another innovation. The nine riders from each team will arrive by boat to the point just before the stage start. Normally, in the time trials of these features, the brackets taken out every two or three minutes. Therefore, during the development stage, the transfer of cyclists from the port to the pan will be an incentive to attract the attention of fans.

Another challenge that will have to overcome the organization to match the pan to the needs of cyclists is to make it a flat surface, without gaps, which should be placed on the exit ramp. But this aspect has been taken into account. To prevent this adaptation distort the image of the pan, place a large transparent acrylic platform, which will allow you see the look of it.

With all this, the main logistical difficulties involved an innovation like this seem to eliminate with, achieving the objective of linking the output from the Rias Baixas with the sea and the seafood sector. And to reinforce the attractiveness of the area for nautical tourism, is also scheduled to punt is surrounded by numerous boats to offer an idyllic image of the coast of Pontevedra.



The arrival, still unconfirmed

What still remains unconfirmed is the place to be located the goal of the trial. Since the council several options being considered with the intent that does not mar the spectacular arrival you will check out.

Given that the stage will be between 20 and 30 kilometers, and has already been announced that will pass the Fefiñáns Praza Cambados, beaches and Silgar Lanzada in Sanxenxo, have the potential to host the goal. However, other locations such as O Grove, Vilagarcía or even Cambados, could be finally chosen for arrival.



Los ciclistas llegarán de 9 en 9 en barco para salir de la batea

No hay excusa logística que valga. La organización de la Vuelta está dispuesta a poner toda la carne en el asador para que la salida de la próxima edición de la ronda española quede grabada en la retina de todos los aficionados al ciclismo.

El anuncio de que la contrarreloj por equipos con la que comenzará la Vuelta 2013 partirá desde una batea, situada en el mar frente al puerto de Vilanova de Arousa, dejó abiertos algunos interrogantes por la dificultad técnica que entraña. Pero la organización ya ha tenido en cuenta los escollos con los que se topará esta innovación, y parece tener atados todos los flecos para garantizar que todo transcurra según lo previsto.

La batea estará conectada con el puerto a través de una pasarela, que conducirá a los ciclistas a tierra firme. Pero la imposibilidad de que esta pasarela sea utilizada por los equipos que todavía se dirigen a la rampa de salida obliga a que se articule una segunda vía de acceso a la batea.

La solución elegida para ello será otra de las innovaciones. Los nueve corredores de cada equipo llegarán en barco hasta el punto de partida momentos antes de iniciar la etapa. Habitualmente, en las contrarrelojes de estas características, las escuadras toman la salida cada dos o tres minutos. Por ello, durante el desarrollo de la etapa, el traslado de ciclistas desde el puerto hasta la batea será un aliciente más para atraer la atención de los aficionados.

Otra de las dificultades que tendrá que sortear la organización para adaptar la batea a las necesidades de los ciclistas es convertirla en una superficie plana, sin huecos, sobre la que deberá colocarse la rampa de salida. Pero también este aspecto se ha tenido en cuenta. Para evitar que esta adaptación desvirtúe la imagen de la batea, se colocará una gran plataforma transparente de metacrilato, que permitirá que se vea el aspecto de la misma.

Con todo esto, las principales dificultades logísticas que entraña una innovación como esta parecen solventadas, lográndose el objetivo de vincular la salida desde las Rías Baixas con el mar y el sector marisquero. Y para reforzar el atractivo de la zona para el turismo náutico, también está previsto que la batea esté rodeada de numerosas embarcaciones para ofrecer una imagen idílica de la costa pontevedresa.



La llegada, aún sin confirmar

Lo que todavía sigue sin confirmarse es el lugar en el que estará situada la meta de la contrarreloj. Desde la Diputación se barajan varias opciones con la intención de que la llegada no desmerezca la espectacularidad que tendrá la salida.

Teniendo en cuenta que la etapa será de entre 20 y 30 kilómetros, y que ya se ha anunciado que pasará por la Praza de Fefiñáns de Cambados, las playas de A Lanzada y de Silgar, en Sanxenxo, tienen muchas posibilidades de albergar la meta. Sin embargo, otras localizaciones como O Grove, Vilagarcía o, incluso, Cambados, podrían ser finalmente las elegidas para la llegada.

I wish the Vuelta would have a few less insanely steep finishes and a few more long, stable climbs, and perhaps the odd downhill finish or two.

So Angliru could be on the penultimate stage of Vuelta.

The 2013 Tour of Spain itself will return to Spain
The summit finishes again be the bet: over half



Juan Gutiérrez | 22/10/2012

The route of the 2013 Tour of Spain itself will return to Spain. It's not just a play on words. After the uniqueness of the 2012 edition, which was played entirely by the North (Madrid was the southernmost point), the organizers are designing a layout that will practically full circle to mainland (with a foray into Andorra), between August 24 and September 15.

According to AS could know, and waiting for the tour is finished defining the sequence (see map) would be roughly as follows: Galicia, Castilla y León, Extremadura, Andalusia, Valencia, Catalonia, Andorra, Aragon, another Once Castilla y León, Cantabria and / or Asturias, and final transfer to Madrid.

We split. The Tour of Spain will start from Galicia, the Rias Baixas. The first stage will be a team time, somewhat longer than usual: about 27 miles. The originality is to start from a trough (the raised platform where the mussels) in the port of Vilanova de Arousa. They want to get the visual effect on TV that cyclists roll over the sea.

During his tour of Galicia, the Tour plans one of its highlights: a demanding final Fisterra pending, after passing through the viewpoint of Ézaro (goal this year). The slopes again be one of the hallmarks of the route: there will be some new, as it is being played in Cáceres, and other classic and, as would be the pioneer Valdepeñas de Jaén (still unconfirmed), which is also being studied the creation of a museum dedicated to cycling.

Between hills and ports, will summit finishes of the decade (more than half of the stages), with only one individual time trial. The formula worked this 2012, and the Tour wants to repeat the experience.



South Mountains.



Unlike last year, there will be one or two arrivals after the descent of a port: one after the Collado de las Sabinillas (in Sierra Nevada, Granada). Among the goals up to receive his baptism in 2013 is the Tour Peñas Blancas in Estepona. The first weekend will already have a strong portion of the South Mountain.

From Andalusia, the Tour of Spain move up the Levant up to the Pyrenees. In the last week will return to the Cantabrian coast. There will be goals at a port in Cantabria and / or Asturias, where it will drop later in a move to Madrid.

It is still early to talk about participation, even if you know the intention of Purito Rodriguez, while the Sky that Wiggins then meditates in 2013 Giro and Vuelta, Tour to reserve Chris Froome.
Other details

Ponferrada. After confirmation of the 2014 World Cup, one of the stages of the Tour would be provided on the tournament circuit.

Presentation. The 2013 tour will be presented on Dec. 12 or Jan. 9 in the province of Pontevedra.

Canary expected. Going through Canaries finally dismissed in 2013, but already works for inclusion in 2014.

Holland. The withdrawal of sponsorship of their teams Rabobank intended not cool Emmen (Drenthe) to host the start of the Vuelta in 2015.

La Vuelta a España 2013 sí dará la vuelta a España
Las llegadas en alto volverán a ser la apuesta: más de la mitad



Juan Gutiérrez | 22/10/2012

El recorrido de la Vuelta a España 2013 sí dará la vuelta a España. No es sólo un juego de palabras. Después de la singularidad de la edición de 2012, que se disputó íntegramente por el norte (Madrid fue el punto más meridional), los organizadores están diseñando un trazado que dará prácticamente un giro completo al territorio peninsular (con una incursión en Andorra), entre el 24 de agosto y el 15 de septiembre.

Según pudo saber AS, y a la espera de que el recorrido se termine de definir, la secuencia (ver mapa) sería más o menos la siguiente: Galicia, Castilla y León, Extremadura, Andalucía, Comunitat Valenciana, Catalunya, Andorra, Aragón, otra vez Castilla y León, Cantabria y/o Asturias, y traslado final a Madrid.

Vamos por partes. La Vuelta a España partirá de Galicia, de las Rías Baixas. La primera etapa volverá a ser una contrarreloj por equipos, algo más larga que otras veces: unos 27 kilómetros. La originalidad es que partirá desde una batea (la plataforma donde se crían los mejillones) en el puerto de Vilanova de Arousa. Se quiere conseguir el efecto visual en televisión de que los ciclistas rueden sobre el mar.

Durante su periplo por Galicia, la Vuelta planea uno de sus platos fuertes: un final de exigentes pendientes en Fisterra, previo paso por el Mirador de Ézaro (meta este año). Las cuestas volverán a ser una de las señas de identidad del recorrido: habrá algunas nuevas, como la que se está barajando en Cáceres, y otras ya clásicas, como sería la pionera Valdepeñas de Jaén (todavía sin confirmar), donde también se está estudiando la creación de un museo dedicado al ciclismo.

Entre cuestas y puertos, las llegadas en alto pasarán de la decena (más de la mitad de las etapas), con una sola crono individual. La fórmula funcionó este 2012, y la Vuelta quiere repetir la experiencia.



Montañas del sur.



A diferencia de la pasada edición, también habrá una o dos llegadas después del descenso de un puerto: una de ellas, tras el Collado de las Sabinillas (en Sierra Nevada, Granada). Entre las metas en alto que recibirán su bautismo en la Vuelta 2013 está Peñas Blancas, en Estepona. El primer fin de semana ya habrá una fuerte ración de montaña por el sur.

Desde Andalucía, la Vuelta a España ascenderá por el Levante hasta llegar a los Pirineos. En la última semana se volverá a la cornisa cantábrica. Habrá metas en algún puerto de Cantabria y/o Asturias, desde donde se bajará posteriormente en un traslado a Madrid.

Aún es pronto para hablar de participación, aunque ya se conoce la intención de Purito Rodríguez, mientras que el Sky medita que Wiggins haga en 2013 Giro y Vuelta, para reservar el Tour a Chris Froome.
Otros detalles

Ponferrada. Tras la confirmación del Mundial 2014, una de las etapas de la Vuelta previstas sería sobre el circuito de este campeonato.

Presentación. El recorrido de 2013 se presentará el 12 de diciembre o el 9 de enero en la provincia de Pontevedra.

Canarias espera. El paso por Canarias se descartó finalmente para 2013, pero ya se trabaja para incluirlo en 2014.

Holanda. La retirada del patrocinio de Rabobank a sus equipos no enfría la intención de Emmen (Drenthe) de acoger la salida de la Vuelta en 2015.
