Day 2
Sunday 108 km - altitude 1700m
The first ride of the week has a gentle flat start along the coast, through Calpe and Moraria towards Javea, before heading inland towards Gata de Gorgos. From here there’s a gradual ascent through Lliber and Parcent, before tackling the Col de Rates, and descending back to Albir. The route between Calpe and Javea will follow some of the roads from the 2017 Vuelta Time Trial, which saw Chris Froome victorious as he attempted to claw back Nairo Quintana’s overall lead.
Day 3
Monday 129 km - altitude 1520m
Today you again head towards Javea, but with some shorter climbs added into the route. From Javea, you continue along the coast to Denia, before heading inland to Pego, then returning to Albir via Orba, Jalon and Benissa.

After a long descent, you’ll tackle the Col de Rates in the opposite direction to earlier in the week, before returning to Albir via the coastal road. The Col de Tudons may be familiar from the role it played in the dramatic penultimate stage of the 2017 Vuelta, with the peloton climbing both sides of this 2nd category climb in quick succession.
