The Angliru returns to the Tour

As revealed by the TPA, the Tour will once again have an end in Angliru. The last time in the Asturian colossus was in 2017. The Farrapona will also be promoted.


The days prior to the presentation of the Tour of Spain are days of proper names. The possible endings of the Spanish round are leaking and in 2019 it is no different. The 2020 edition (from August 14 to September 6) of the Spanish round will be presented on December 17 and more and more details are being known. The start will be in Utrecht (Netherlands) and the race will not come down from Madrid. There will be many high endings, highlighting that one of them will be the mythical Tourmalet, an unprecedented port on Vuelta.

Nor have Moncalvillo (La Rioja) and Laguna Negra (Soria) ever climbed. In addition to those three finals, those planned at the Mirador de Ézaro and the Sanctuary of Arrate had been filtered. Now, the RTPA (Asturias television) has revealed that cyclists will climb Angliru, a peak where Alberto Contador last won in 2017. It will be the eighth time that the Tour climbs 12.6 kilometers to the 10% on average and ramps up to 23.5% of the Asturian colossus.

The same medium, also points to the Farrapona (also in Asturias) as another possible end While, in that list of goals in height, the Diario de Navarra points to the name of San Miguel de Aralar, an 11-kilometer climb with a medium slope of 8% and ramps of 17% in its last kilometer and which was first climbed in 2014.
