Puerto Morcuera

Madrid, Spain

About the ride

The third Category 1 climb of Stage 20 in the 2015 Vuelta. A great climb that starts at the small town of Miraflores near Madrid. Popular with the locals and a regular inclusion in the VueltaTerrain - Uphill all the way. It starts out quite easy, but the second half is a solid 6% to 9% gradient all the way up

Training suggestions

Great for a 20min FTP test or max test because of the way it continually ramps up as it goes along. Also good for seated hill strength
