There is Friday not only in France, Colombia and Malaysia, because today also starts the Vuelta Ciclista a la Region de Murcia, simply the Tour of Murcia. Who does the best business and wins the opening stage with arrival in Caravaca de la Cruz? Discuss this here WielerFits the price trend.
The first stage takes the riders from Los Alcázares to Caravaca de la Cruz. Along the way there are the necessary climbs on the menu, with the Alto Cabezo de la Plata (2.2 km at 5%), the Alto Garapacha (7.1 km at 4.3% and a ‘spur’ of 5.4 km at 5.4%) and the Alto Quipar (4.4 km at 4.9%).
Moreover, the last kilometers to the finish are also annoying uphill, with percentages that fluctuate around 3-4%. The riders finish after 177.6 kilometers at a height of 654 meters. With Movistar, Astana, CCC and BORA-hansgrohe, there are still four WorldTour teams at the start.
We are looking forward to home drivers Alejandro Valverde and Luis León Sánchez, Felix Großschartner, Enric Mas, Matteo Trentin and from a Dutch perspective Alex Molenaar and Jetse Bol. The riders will leave at 12.15 pm and will finish between 4.28 and 4.55 pm. The match cannot be followed live on Dutch and Belgian TV.
