“It is not in our plans for 2024” - Alto de l’Angliru set to be left out of La Vuelta Femenina route

After an incredible finale on the Lagos de Covadonga at La Vuelta Femenina last year, many thought that the race organisers Unipublic would go one better this year with rumours of a mountaintop finish on the Alto de l’Angliru.

However, the race’s technical director Kiko García said in an interview with Relevo that “it is not in our plans for 2024. I think the Angliru is possible in the future, because the quality of the WorldTour women is growing enormously. Last year we already finished on Lagos de Covadonga, a tough climb with a big name in the sport. And the result was spectacular. But we also have to ensure balance in the course and not just look at the uphill finishes”.

The full route for this year’s race is set to be announced on Friday, with Valencia having already been announced as hosting the Gran Salida, but it is not yet known whether the opening stage will be a time trial as it was last year.
