The road races

From Friday, the road races will take place, until Sunday. They'll all take place on the same circuit around Ponferrada (without an initial part in line as often is the case), in which we find two climbs, a big one of 5.2 kilometers - Confederación - with an average steepness of 3.3% (going up to 8.7%) and the Mirador climb over 1.14 kilometers with an average steepness of 5.5% going up to 10.7%!

These climbs will be part of each lap on the circuit and will thus be climbed up to 14 times by the Men elite!
