In the Vuelta a Andalucia Ruta Ciclista Del Sol 2020 the finish of the first stage was only 6 km after the summit of this climb. Fuglsang followed Landa after the Basque attacked some five kilometres from the summit of the Puerto de las Palomas. The duo then gained further time on a shattered chase group on the fast drop to the finish town of Grazalema where Fuglsang won the stage.
