Vuelta a Espana 2018 (Cat. 1, deadline on 25/8)

Post by emmea90 »

Contest #7 - Vuelta a Espana 2018
The seventh contest of the year will be the contest of the third Grand Tour, la Vuelta.

The contest will be about redrawing the 2018 Vuelta a Espana. That will mainly means
  • You have to keep the start from Malaga and the first 3 stages entirely in Andalucia with Malaga hosting start and finish of Stage 1 and start of stage 2.
  • You have to end it in Madrid
  • You cannot repeat finals or key parts of stages of 2017 real race
We won't add any futher constraints on WWI and Regions there.

The constraints are, instead, the following ones
  • You had to switch Vuelta's nature in a more "Tour-de-France" one that means.
    • Maximum two stages with finishes on "Muritos" (less than 3 Km climbs with >8% average)
    • Minimum 50 Km flat ITT, balanced with the proper amount of mountains
    • Minimum two high mountain stages over 200 Km
    • Minimum two high mountain stages without a Mountain Top Finish
    • Minimum one high mountain stages with at least two more climbs 1Cat or ESP in sequence
    • Minimum one high mountain stages with at least three more climbs 1Cat or ESP in sequence
  • You can go out of Spain only one time and only for a part of one stage that must not exceed the 50% of the stage in lenght
Opposite from the other contests, you can have a maximum of TWO routes submitted for this one

The Vuelta should be balanced, offering a "Dumoulin" and a "Quintana" the same chances to compete for the red jersey.

You must submit your routes in this topic submitting the link. As stated in general presentation, you can submit from 1 to 3 routes. You can use this topic also for asking the question - we can answer question about climb / road / finish praticability but we won't answer to anyone's questions in private, only in this topic.

The Deadline will be on 25/8, when the first rider of real Vuelta a Espana will start his ITT

Everyone who will present the route also posting in the topic profiles and descriptions in this topic will start the voting phase with 3 points bonus

Good luck anyone
