The Vuelta a San Juan 2023 will take place from the 22nd to 29th of January and will see the start of the season of many of the world's best riders including World Champion Remco Evenepoel. Argentina hosts what is one of the early-season's most prestigious races.
With the absence of any time-trials this year, the fifth stage of the race is set to be the key day and the one that, in normal occasions, should make the decisive differences. There is over the final half of the race a slight rise, and the final ascent to Alto del Colorado will also host the finish of the stage.
It is a 12.7 kilometer long climb at 4.9%, not the toughest of ascents, but the finish line will be placed at 2623 meters of altitude, making it more difficult than at first sight.
