Stage 12, August 31: Motril – Antequera/Los Dólmenes, 160.1 km

Start: 13:28
Finish: 17:28-17:54

Today’s profile has the same general shape as that of Stage 11, although the climbs are less severe and there is no uphill finish. After an initial bump or two, the route runs along the coast, then turns inland for two climbs. The 1st-category Puerto del León begins at Km 84, the Puerto del Torca begins at Km 134 (26,1 km from the finish).


Km 101.4 – Puerto del León: 1st cat., 17.4 km at 4.9% avg., 10.5% max.

Km 142.6 – Puerto del Torca: 2nd cat., 7.6 km at 7% avg.
