The chance to take on 2 legendary Vuelta a Espana finish climbs. First the Coll de Gallina that last saw victory go to Enric Mas on the penultimate stage of the 2018 Vuelta when Britain’s Simon Yates secured the overall victory. We then cross to the other side of the valley and climb to Naturland which the peloton took on in 2019 when Thibaut Pinot was victorious. On the ride back to the hotel we take on the short yet challenging Comella climb which saw an aggressive race on stage 3 of the 2017 edition of the race. How do your climbing times compare?
