Don't miss a moment from Paris-Roubaix and Unbound Gravel, to the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France, Vuelta a España, and everything in between when you join Outside+.

The stage is another temporary respite for those who fear climbing. Location of the stunning Puente Nuevo bridge, Ronda appears as a depart town for the first time ever, while the vineyard-rich Montilla is a new finish location.

Uphill roads soon after the drop of the flag followed by undulations make it likely an early breakaway will build time, but a flatter finale points towards a big chase and the likelihood of a big gallop to the line. The final kilometers are slightly uphill, which will please the puncheurs and more versatile sprinters.
