The Rouvy platform allows you to ride the same routes the pros do in reality. So, ready to climb? Or do you just want to enjoy a ride along the coast? Rouvy offers you five segments of this year’s La Vuelta route. They are stages 2, 4 and 6, which are flat, and then 11 and 12, offering you a lot of climbing.

The stage 2 course will make its way through a scenic municipality called Villafruela, a rural area in Burgos, Castile and León, nestled in the north of Spain. It will lead you over gently rolling sepia grasslands and finally over the small Arlanza river to the finish in Tordómar, an area dominated by cultivated fields of cereal and ochre-coloured meadows set against an azure sky. It’s the first possible bunch sprint where there will be an opportunity to show who is in form, go for the win, and grab points for the ŠKODA Green Jersey competition.

Stage 4 is good for sprinters as well. Join the peloton and experience the contrast of either racing or having a relaxed ride in the tranquil Spanish countryside. The sprinters can also have the opportunity to show their speed skills and take full advantage of this fast profile. Starting in the small historic town of Alcolea del Pinar and finishing in the village of Anquela del Ducado, you will enjoy riding through rolling hills with a backdrop of mellow pastures, farmland, and dense Mediterranean vegetation.

Stage 6 will be a flat route apart from a slight but steep ascent in the first half of the course and after which it will wind its way towards the finish line situated at the Cullera Castle. Enjoy the sites of this historic resort town with its restored hilltop fortress built in the 10th century, with beautiful scenic water views along the coast overlooking the beach.

Stage 12 is tough on the legs as well. The first climb begins in the ancient Medina Azahara, a fortified palace city and an important historical landmark in Andalusia. You’ll climb about 400 m, followed by some undulating terrain towards the summit of San Jeronimo at around the 15-km mark. Then you’ll descend for 8 km into the ancient and cultural city of Cordoba before heading uphill again for the final tough 7-km climb to the finish.
