Last Big Day For The GC Battle! | La Vuelta 2021 Stage 18 Highlights

Published on September 2nd 2021


Another four cat-climbs in today’s stage, it is fitting that this stage that includes one of the hardest climbs of La Vuelta has been remarked as including elevations that have rarely been seen before in the Grand Tour. Featuring La Vuelta favourites such as Puertu de San Llaurienzu at an average of 8.6% for 10km, the stage then descends away from the San Llaurienzu, up a secondary cat climb before a technical and somewhat dangerous descent towards Pola de Lena. The special and final HC climb of La Vuelta then makes a grand entrance, lasting for a gruelling 15km with an average of 10%, and time running out for climbers before final TT, every second will count.
