STAGE 8 DETAILS:
Start And Finish: Alzira → Alto de Aitana
Distance: 205 km
Stage Profile: The eighth stage of the Vuelta, which takes place Sunday 6th September, is the first true mountain stage. It is also possibly one of the most difficult stages of the whole 2009 edition. On 6th September, the race will see the riders cover 203 kilometres between the city of Alzira and the finish at Alto de Aitana, as well as scailing….eight climbs!: four 3rd category , three 2nd category and one Special category climb.
Beniarrés (3rd category-km. 52), Margarida (3rd category-km. 71), Tollos (2nd category-km. 80), Castell de Castells (3rd category -km. 100), Guadalest (2nd Category-km. 131), Confrides (3rd Category-km. 144) and Tudons (2nd category-km. 160) will put the riders through hell before facing the final climb on the ascent of Aitana, a 21.7 kilometre climb with an average gradient of 5.7% and stretches of 9.5%.
Previous editions: Whilst Alzira has never hosted the start of stage in the Vuelta, Aitana has figured in the route on two previous occassions, both of which were spectacular. 2001 saw victory going to Klaus Moller, a member of the Portuguese team “Milaneza”. In the 2004 edition victory went to Leonardo Piepoli. Both previous stage finishes shared a common characteristic: a huge turnout of spectators lining the route.
