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

Post by emmea90 » 02/05/2018, 11:23

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

MY VUELTA 2018: maps/tours/view/9225

Stage 1: Malaga > Malaga (TTT - 29,71 km)
The first stage of my Vuelta is a TTT, as usual in this race. The road are straight, a little sinuous in Malaga but not dangerous.
Image

Stage 2: Malaga > Granada (Hilly - 172,73 km)
This stage is open for all types of riders. The breakaway has a real change here, sprinters too.
Image

Stage 3: Granada > Roquetas de Mar (Plain - 179,14 km)
The Puerto de la Ragua, in the middle of stage, won't stop sprinters for their victory. This is a stage for sprinters but some riders will be already tired after this.
Image

Stage 4: Almeria > Santiago de la Espeda (H-Mountain - 219,73 km)
First mountain stage of this vuelta, with the Calar Alto just after start, which will make a breakaway. This stage is very interesting with the last 2 climbs.
Image

Stage 5: Almaciles > Alicante (Plain - 218,31 km)
This stage finishes with the climb of Castell Santa Barbara, but this isn't difficult so sprinters will surely take the victory.
Image

Stage 6: Alicante > La Vall d'Uixo (Plain - 250,26)
Longest stage of this vuelta, near to Mediterranean Sea all the day, so wind will be maybe at the party. It finishes with a little climb of less than 1km at 3 % so not dangerous for sprinters.
Image

Stage 7: La Vall d'Uixo > Orpesa (ITT - 50,40 km)
Flat ITT, climbers will lose time on that one, but for sure they will have opportunities to get back that time.
Image

Stage 8: Tortosa > Serra de l'Aragall (Hilly - 202,03 km)
Stage for punchers, last climb is very difficult, above 10 % average.
Image

Stage 9: Barcelona > Figueras (Plain - 214,01 km)
This stage is surely for sprinters but we should take care of punchers with the last climb. It's not very difficult but some riders can attack.
Image

Stage 10: Figueras > La Molina (H-Mountain - 133,72 km)
Interesting stage, there won't be big gaps but some failures can appear because of High Altitude.
Image

Stage 11: Alp > Estacio d'Esqui Tuixent - La Vansa (H-Mountain - 187,40 km)
La Vansa is less known than Port Del Comte, but is much difficult.
Image

Stage 12: La Seu d'Urgell > Superbagnères - Pic d'Aspe (H-Mountain - 171,96 km)
Only passage in a foreign country, with 26 km in France, to finish on the not enough known climb Superbagnères.
Image

Stage 13: Benasque > Formigal (H-Mountain - 158,60 km)
Hard stage with the very dangerous climb of Puerto de Fanlo, with very small roads, riders should be very careful.
Image

Stage 14: Etxauri > Puenta la Reina (ITT - 36,39 km)
Hilly and downhill ITT. The last downhill is really rapid so riders have to be careful.
Image

Stage 15: Pamplona > Zarautz (M-Mountain - 171,17 km)
This stage is using very interesting climbs, which are not very difficult but can still make gaps. Downhills can be dangerous.
Image

Stage 16: Zarautz > Burgos (Plain - 223,36 km)
Stage for sprinters.
Image

Stage 17: Najéra > Alto Campoo - Mirador Fuente del Chivo (H-Mountain - 216,79 km)
Only one climb in this stage, at the end.
Image

Stage 18: Reinosa > Posada de Valdéon (H-Mountain - 211,23 km)
The San Glorio is very difficult and can make gaps.
Image

Stage 19: Leon > Medina del Campo (Plain - 173,97 km)
No difficulty.
Image

Stage 20: Medina del Campo > Rascafria (H-Mountain - 220,72 km)
Last mountain stage , last opportunity for climbers to gain time.
Image

Stage 21: Mostoles > Madrid (Plain - 111,11 km)
The riders with the red jersey can enjoy his victory. This is already finished!! |doson
Image

This is my second version of the Vuelta a España and, therefore, the definitive one. My route is very varied, it has seven flat endings for the massive sprinters, five stages of medium mountain with steep climbs of 2 category, six stages of high mountain, only two of them finished in a long climb (ESP) and, to compensate, three time trials, two individuals, one of 53km flat and one of 34 km with mountains, and one team time trial in Málaga with 23 km.

What do you mean with a mountain top finish? A ESP or 1 finish or any climb on the finish line?

My second route of the Vuelta a España.
maps/tours/view/9558

In this route I wanted to visit some areas forgotten by Vuelta a España. Visit the province of Huelva or the Community of Extremadura, where arrivals have been made on rare occasions. Take advantage of the Sierra de Cazorla, where only tiptoes have been reached on occasion. The Sierra de Urbión, Sierra Norte de Sevilla or the Sierra de la Cabrera, practically unprecedented areas and make a small incursion into the Picos de Europa.
The tour meets the following points:
- Start in Málaga
- The second stage start in Málaga.
- The first three stages in Andalucía
- Several mountain stages that exceed 200 kms.
- Several mountain stages with more than 2 and 3 ports of 1st or special and without finishing high.
- More than 50 kms ITT flat.
- You do not leave Spain.
- There are no endings in "muritos".
- No finals or key parts of the 2017 race are repeated.

The race has:
- 2 rest days after stages 9 and 15.
- 19 kms TTT of the first stage
- 83 kms ITT divided between stages 7 and 16.
- 5 flat stages (2, 5, 10, 13 and 21)
- 7 medium mountain or accidented stages (3, 4, 6, 14, 15, 17 and 18)
- 6 high mountain stages ( 8, 9, 11, 12, 19 and 20)
- 60 GPM
- 3 Especiales
- 13 of 1st category
- 20 of 2nd category
- 24 of 3th category

Minimum two high mountain stages without a Mountain Top Finish

Questo vuol dire che ci devono essere due tappe di montagna senza arrivo in salita?

This is my Vuelta a España

To highlight the two new walls, one in Euskadi and the other in Castellón, the mountain stages, unpublished in the Vuelta a España except in the case of Andorra and the penultimate stage, a half- mountain day that presents a novelty to editions previous, in which it was a stage of high mountain. This gives possibilities to riders who are not so climbers but who can pass the mountain well, as is the case of Dumoulin.
