Stage 7 - 05/07/2023

Mountain - Pola de Siero > Lagos de Covadonga - 93.7 km

Lagos de Covadonga

The ascent of the Lagos de Covadonga, one of La Vuelta’s most emblematic climbs, first appeared in the race on the 2nd of May, 1983. Now, on the 40th anniversary of its debut, it will be the culminating point of La Vuelta Femenina’s first edition. Little remains unknown about this climb: 12 kilometres with an almost 8% inclination that have become part of cycling history, such as La Huesera, that witness the battles between the peloton’s best riders.

Pola de Siero

In the mining heart of Asturias, the Siero Council used coal to fuel its mining activity throughout the 19th century. The black coal stands in stark contrast to the green valleys and mountains it helped to create, along with the resulting livestock and farming industry, which has since become the area’s main economic activity. Having already witnessed the passing of La Vuelta on numerous occasions, Pola de Siero will now make its debut in La Vuelta Femenina in 2023.
