Tour of Spain 2022 | Profile, route and schedule of Stage 19 in Talavera de la Reina

The Vuelta a España 2022 reaches its final stretch, with the penultimate stage of the competition. In Stage 19, the cyclists will have to travel 138.3 kilometers through Talavera de la Reina. The mid-mountain route will begin and end in this town in Madrid.

Remco Evenpoel (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl) is more of a leader than ever. In the final stage, he celebrated a "perfect day" at the Vuelta a España and retained the leader's red jersey by winning a late sprint to the top of Alto de Piornal on Thursday.

The 192km mountain stage from Trujillo culminated with two climbs to the top-class Alto de Piornal, and it was here that the 22-year-old secured victory.

He overtook his closest rival in the general classification, Spaniard Enric Mas, after the duo caught up with stage leader Robert Gesink (Jumbo-Visma) with just under half a kilometer to go, widening his advantage in the general classification of two minutes and seven seconds over the Spanish.

Stage 19 of the Vuelta a España 2022, which will take place entirely in Talavera de la Reina, will cover 138.3 kilometers and will start at 12:30 p.m., with a scheduled finish for 5:41 p.m.

The race can be seen live on Teledeporte and Eurosport. It can also be followed through the La Vanguardia website.
