Lagos de Covadonga is without a doubt the most important climb in the modern history of the Vuelta. This time, the stage arrives in the first week, which will certainly force the favorites to be in top physical form when they arrive in Vigo, not to mention mentally prepared to perform at their peak from the very first day. In addition, the Faya de Los Lobos (2nd category) will serve to warm up the legs in the early kilometers. <br> <br> The climb to Lagos de Covadonga is 12.6 kilometers long with an average incline of 7.3%. The La Huesera stretch often proves to be decisive during the ascent, with a sustained climb of over 13% for over half a kilometer. Though Lagos de Covadonga won&#039;t decide the winner of the Vuelta, you can bet that come Tuesday 4 September, any racers who didn&#039;t arrive at the start of this year&#039;s event in top form will be left by the roadside. <br> <br> Brief History: Langreo has never hosted the start of a Vuelta stage, but Lago de Covadonga now boasts 15 finishes since Marino Lejarreta won in 1983. Since then, the list of winners only underlines the importance of this climb: Dietzen, Delgado (2 times), Robert Millar, Lucho Herrera (2 times), Pino, Oliveiro Rincan, Jalabert (2 times), Tonkov, Zintchenko and Eladio Jimanez have all triumphed on this peak in Asturias.
