If the last profile is true, now that's much harder than advertised...some nasty kicks. I bet that Valv.Piti is crying now . Balaphilippe for the win!!!Robert5091 said:http://www.cyclingstage.com/vuelta-2017-route/stage-5-spain-route-2017/axl said:I got a question about tomorrow stage. The last climb (Ermita Sta. Lucía. Alcossebre) is noted "3.4 kilometre-long climb at 4.2%". But it's 310m high on 3,4km, so if i'm not mistaken it's almost 10% ! Is the official vuelta site wrong ?
Last 5 kmAt 3.4 kilometres, the hill is averaging 9.7%. At almost 15%, the first part is steepest, while the final 1,600 metres go up at 5%.
Edit - just found this which is either wrong, old or correct! Whole climb to the top.
