Stage 15, September 3: Alcalá la Real – Sierra Nevada/Alto Hoya de la Mora. Monachil, 129.4 km

Neutral start: 13:39
Real racing: 13:49
Finish: 17:18-17:44

Stage 15, “nasty, brutish and short”, will make sure that the riders in this edition of the Vuelta need the second rest, which arrives tomorrow. At only 129.4 kilometers, this stage will pack a punch like none other so far in this grand tour, coming as it does after two weeks of hard racing.

The suffering begins at Km 57.7, just before the halfway point, with the start of the 1st-category Alto de Hazallanas. The climb of the Alto del Purche follows, beginning at Km 101 (28.4 km to go). The final kicker, climb to the summit finish of the Alto Hoya de la Mora, begins at 110.1 (19.3 km to go).

Climbs:

Km 74.0 – Alto de Hazallanas: 1st cat., 16.3 km at 5.5% avg.

Km 109.5 – Alto del Purche: 1st cat., 8.5 km at 8%

Km 129.4 – Sierra Nevada. Alto Hoya de la Mora. Monachil: Hors categorie, 19.3 km at 5.6% avg.
