Stage 6, August 24: Vila-real – Sagunt, 204.4 km

Start: 12:26
Finish: 17:25-17:57

Stage 6 is a rompepiernas, a day of constant climbs.

Two points along the route will demand attentiveness from the riders. There is an unlit tunnel of 150 meters on a descent and lefthand curve at Km 52, 2.5 km before the climb of the Puerto de Eslida. At 700 meters before the finish a roundabout is followed immediately by a hard left turn.
