In the sixth stage of the Vuelta 2020, the route would initially lead over the Col de Portalet, the Col d'Aubisque and finally a finish at the top of the Tourmalet. As a result of the Corona problems and the more stringent measures that followed, the organisation decided to adapt the stage and no longer ride over French territory.
The organisation has already presented an alternative stage. The riders will go over the Alto de Petralba, the Puerto de Cotefablo, after which they will finish at the Sallent de Gállego-Aramón Formigal ski station.
