Vuelta a España’s unprecedented ascent of the Gamoniteiru and road to nowhere – Preview


“The last two kilometres never seem to end,” is how Asturias-born pro Dani Navarro (Burgos-BH) described the final part of the Vuelta a España’s eighth and hardest summit finish, the unprecedented ascent of the Gamoniteiru, when he tackled it last winter. But it’s far from only the last two kilometres of the climb, or indeed the entire stage, that is so tough.

Set deep in the sierras de Aramo in western Asturias and within sight of the much-feared Angliru, stage 18’s final on the Gaimoniteiru and the three classified climbs which precede it look set to present a formidable final mountain challenge from start to finish.
