After a flat stage to Tarragona on Tuesday, the Vuelta a España heads down the coast to Alcossebre for a short, sharp uphill finish.
The 175.5km route would see the first uphill finishh of this year’s race, as the riders hit the seaside town of Alcossebre, before turning onto a steep ramp to Ermita Santa Lucia.
This will be the first really explosive test of the race, with the climb being only a few kilometres in length, and featuring gradients up to 18 percent.
