Following completion of the fourth stage, Transpyr has passed the midway point, leaving Catalonia behind and delving into the Aragon Pyrenees. The finishing line in the historic town of Aínsa (Huesca) received the survivors of the event, that will ends on Saturday in Hondarribia.
Today we have had a 100-km stage, with a seemingly interminable 15-km final descent from Peña Montañesa. This final section challenged the dexterity and endurance of the cyclists with a rather unusual downhill stretch which combines highly technical, challenging stretches with others in which the riders could let fly and enjoy the ride.
Tomorrow’s stage, which ends in Jaca, includes 89 kilometres of breathtaking trails in Aragon’s Sobrarbe and Jacetània regions and a net elevation change of 2,200 metres.
