Vuelta a España Vuelta a España 2021: Stage 4 (El Burgo de Osma > Molina de Aragón, 163.9 km)


Molina de Aragón will be the second great opportunity for sprinters in La Vuelta 21. Flat stage with an expected mass arrival. The teams with sprinters will have to work hard, should a favourite try to break away following the exhaustion of the Picón Blanco.

From the Road Book:

Recta de 115 m en ligera subida recta

130 m en ligera subida recta de 80 m
en ligero descenso y 535 m en recta
con ligera curva izda. y dcha. Últimos

So the last 500 m have an average gradient of 2.3 %, it's for the pure sprinters.

The stage profile has to be wrong if the finish is really at 1.134m. ProCyclingStats mentions 1080m which makes more sense.
or the altitude Climbfinder is wrong. Tomorrow's finish is located at around 0.5-0.6k on their profile, at least, so before the steep part.

not sure, on Street View it looks fairly narrow and more twisty than the map makes you think. Not in the dangerous way, but the peloton will likely be stretched out, meaning position is key. Could be an issue for Matthews, as he lacks support. If Groupama get's it right today, I'd go for Demare
