Making its first return since 2010, the Wall of Aia awaits the peloton on this year’s penultimate stage of Vuelta al Pais Vasco. The one kilometre 14.4% average incline will be ascended thrice in the last 20km of the race. Here the riders tackle one of its 25% ramps – rather them than me.
Racing up that sort of stuff is nuts. Only in crazy Espana!
There’s plenty of climbs like it in the Basque cou try. I’ve even scaled a few of them!
Aye, I know what that feels like!
