Vuelta 2022: Liveblog – Unrest in the peloton, Carlos Rodriguez loses on the first climb

Current Leading Group

In the penultimate stage of the Vuelta a España 2022, a lot can still happen in the battle for the overall victory. The organization is undoubtedly hoping for a nail-biting apotheosis near Madrid, between Moralzarzal and the Puerto de Navacerrada. Five climbs over a distance of 181 kilometers!

The first climb, the well-known one Puerto de Navacerrada (10.3 km at 6.8%), follows quite soon after the start. Then follows a quick descent and passage through a long valley, on the way to the Puerto de Navafria (9.8 km at 5.5%), the second climb of the day.

From that moment on, the cols follow each other in rapid succession, with successively the Puerto de Canencia (7.5 km at 4.9%), Puerto de la Morcuera (9.4 km at 6.9%) and the all-deciding Puerto de Cocos (10.3 km at 6.9%). Once at the top of the Puerto de Cotos, the riders will race for another seven kilometers on a kind of plateau, before finishing at the top of the Puerto de Navacerrada.
