After stage 11’s downhill finish into Elpozo Alimentacion, stage 12 sees the riders tackle a gruelling summit finish to Calar Alto at more than 2,000m above sea-level.

The uphill finishes so far in this race have been short, steep, and punchy, so this 15.5km final climb is the first real major mountain test, providing a good indication of what we can expect on the two even bigger summit finishes scheduled for the weekend.
