After the time trial in Hondarriba which yesterday inaugurated the Tour of the Basque Country 2022 , today the second stage of the race in Iberian territory is scheduled, which will take the riders from Leitza to Viana along a route of 207.9 kilometers . Let’s see, below, all the details of the stage we are about to live.
We actually start uphill with the climb of the Uitzi GPM (3700 meters at 6.9%) and then continue towards Madotz, with probably more than a few runners who have already started the breakaway of the day; the climb will resume with the Lizarraga GPM (9.5 km at 5.2%), followed by a long downhill and then flat section. Last stretch characterized by the GPM of Aguilar Gaina (12.6 km at 3.1%), to then arrive at the final finish line at Viana .
The course is not particularly treacherous but, at the same time, neither to the full advantage of the sprinters. In short, the ones who can prevail and impose themselves in today’s stage are the complete runners, who know how to juggle similar paths; in detail, Julian Alaphilippe (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl) certainly starts among the favorites, together with his teammate (who could help the Frenchman) Remco Evenepoel . To keep an eye on the two blues of UAE Team Emirates Alessandro Covi and Diego Ulissi .
