The Spanish Cycling Federation has announced the cities and the parcours of the upcoming National Championships.

The 2020 Spanish National Championships will take place in the province Jaén, in the Andalucía region of the country. The cities of Cazorla, La Iruela, Úbeda and Baeza will be hosting the different events of the championships that will be held between the 21st and the 23rd of August.

The championships will kick off on the Friday, August 21 with the individual time trials, which will start in Cazorla and finish in La Iruela. The women Elite event will be in the morning over a 29.4-kilometre route and the men's will face 48 kilometres in the afternoon.

"The time trial will be very difficult and demanding, and the riders will have to adjust themselves and know the course very well, because at the end there is a small climb that was already included at the end of one stage in the Vuelta a España 2015," said the Spanish national coach Pascual Momparler.

The women's peloton will have the road race on Saturday 22nd of August and it will face a 104-kilometre rolling course between Ubeda and Baeza. And the next day, the men elite event will be held over 184 kilometres, the same route that the women tackled the day before.

"We have decided to do a circuit format, like the World Championships, of 25 kilometres and 500 metres of climbing every lap," mentioned Momparler. "The championships will be very difficult, but beautiful and unique due to the heat. But we will enjoy it very much, particularly the fans."
