Portman will be the first obstacle that the peloton will face, which will then have to ascend in a chained way the Port of Garruchal and the Cresta del Gallo, whose descent will end in the final circuit. There, the quadruple rise to the Sanctuary of Fuensanta will be decided. The three continents, Burgos-BH, Caja Rural and Murias, will try to stop the telephone squad, which in 2018 saw how Gorka Izagirre (then with the Bahrain) broke a hegemony of eight years.
