Andalucía Bike Race presented by Shimano 2018 will start in Linares (Jaén) and finish in Córdoba, after six sensational days of competition. The stages will be divided evenly between the provinces of Jaén and Córdoba, completing a race of about 400 kilometers and 10,000 meters of ascension, maintaining the criterion of short, technical and intense stages. Authentic Mountain Bike!
The race will begin with a time trial by the mining district of Linares, similar to the last and fun stage of the last edition. The second, also in Linares, will visit new places. The third stage will be the classic stage of Andújar, which serves as a day of transition between both provinces before the great Day of Andalucía, which will coincide with the fourth stage to be played in Córdoba. A stage that promises to be a party, as happened in the last edition. The fifth stage, in a locality of Córdoba, will be unpublished and surprising.
