THE ROUTE


The stage starts at 8:00 h from the Faro de Maspalomas in the direction of Vecindario, at the Cruce de Arinaga we take GC-100 and start the short but intense climb of Alto de Las Crucitas of 3rd category. Stop in Agüimes to regain strength and resume the march with the participants of the Starter modality.

We continue along GC-100 towards Ingenio and Telde, cross the Barranco de Telde through the Puente de los Siete Ojos and take the GC-810 road to San Roque to climb the second pass of the day, Lomitos de Correa of 2nd category. At the foot of the church of Valsequillo we regroup to have something to eat and then we start the last pass of the day through the mountains of Tenteniguada of 2nd category reaching 1.015 m of altitude, the highest point of the day.

After a descent we stop in San Mateo for the last regrouping and so we can arrive all together to Santa Brigida where we will have lunch, leave the bikes there and take the transport back to Maspalomas.
