The closing climb of stage 6 of the 2014 Vuelta Espana is only a short spin away from our base in Velez de Benaudalla.

The 1,095m high climb is not a particularly long one, but what it lacks in length it is made up for in it's steepness. The total length to La Zubia is only 4.6 kilometres from which the first 1,600 metres are partly flat. The following 3 kilometres raise with an average gradient of 10%!
