Stage 14 of the Vuelta a España 2023: route, profile and today’s schedule

This Saturday’s stage of the Vuelta a España will be the second helping of the Pyrenees after Friday’s spectacular day ending in the Tourmalet, a stage that turned the race upside down.

He Saturday there will be a total of 156.6 km of route between Sauveterre de Bearn and Larra Belagua with the fearsome Puerto de Larrau in the middle and the addition of another colossus, the Col Hourcére, also of the Special category.

The presence of the Hourcére in the first half of the route predicts an extremely tough day, since its 11.1 km at an average gradient of 8.7 percent and a maximum gradient of 14 can leave the runners very mature for a Larrau even longer, 14.9 km at 8 percent and with harder ramps, up to 16.

The three that crown them in the lead will have the prize of 6, 4 and 2, respectively.

In total, they will be 3,700 meters of positive slopewith less demanding difficulties until the end.

First, a Third stop, that of Laza, and the final climb to Belagua also of consideration, although rated First with 9.5 km at 6.3 percent and sections of up to 10.

Day to see if the Jumbo continues stratospheric and if Juan Ayuso and Enric Mas can put some of those in yellow in trouble. Also if Mikel Landa and Marc Soler can maintain their Top 10 and how far the young Cian Uijtdebroecksya goes without his compatriot Remco Evenepoel already in the fight.

In this second Pyrenean stage, the general classification is led by Sepp Kuss, with his teammates Primoz Roglic and Jonas Vingegaard on the other steps of the podium, at 1.37 and 1.44, respectively. Ayuso and Mas are fourth and fifth, 2.37 and 3.06 from the American.
