The FLASH STAGE will be the only time trial (XCT) of the competition, and the shortest stage of all. With 24.55 kilometres and 870 metres of climbing, stands out the ascent to El Neveral, the highest point of the stage at 995 metres. A demanding stage has been designed following the typical orography of Jaén, with a long ascent and descent. The toughness of the terrain will make it a very attractive and fun stage to start this edition with a good feeling.
The stage will start from Las Fuentezuelas Sports Complex with a progressive ascent looking for the Paraje de la Fuente de la Zarza to access the Parque Periurbano de Santa Catalina which will take us along the characteristic paths to El Neveral. Once at the top of the ascent we will begin a continuous labyrinth of paths and trails in a vertiginous descent along the Vereda del Luminoso, looking for one of the most legendary mountain bike trails in Jaén: "La Cabra" in the area of Valcrespo.
Going uphill and with a view to the last kilometres, we will climb the mountain of Imora where we will find the refreshment station to go towards Cañada Real de Torredelcampo until the Vía Verde del Aceite de Oliva that will take us to the finish line, at the same point where we started the ride.
