El Barco de Ávila, Castile and León
Breakfast, Farewell Dinner (incl. wine)
Six categorised climbs feature in today’s penultimate stage, with a finish at a ski station, near to 2,000m. The exposed climb to Covatilla makes its summit appear much closer and a consistent around 10% gradient, your weary legs will test your resolve. Crowds will be walking up before the race arrives, and their cheer will give you encouragement. We will watch the race on the climb before rolling back to our hotel for a farewell dinner, leaving the night free in Madrid tomorrow.
