The Angliru is feared as the hardest climb in professional cycling. To "welcome" our new Spanish-language channel, GCN en Español, we decided it was time for another presenter challenge.

We are launching an all new channel for road cyclists, who speak Spanish. That’s right, GCN en Españ ol has officially arrived. But not only that, GCN is growing too, with a larger presenting team to help bring more videos, longer videos, and crucially, even better videos.

To celebrate this expansion, and particularly our new Spanish language channel, we’ve come out to the beautiful Asturias region in Spain, to go for a nice gentle ride so you can get to know your new presenters.

The Angliru is 13km long, and at an average gradient of 9.8% it’s clearly steep. However, those stats hide it’s real dark side. Half of the climb is well over 10%, including 3km that average 23%. The record stands at 41 minutes 55 and is held by Roberto Heras from the Vuelta in the year 2000. Most recently, Chris Froome rode up in 44:36 in 2017.

With ramps of up to 24%, it's harder than anything seen in the Tour de France and is always decisive when used in the Vuelta a España. Alberto Contador and Chris Froome have featured strongly when it was last used.

Although the average gradient of the climb is "only" 10%, this gives a false impression. The hardest parts come in the final half of the climb, which features brutal ramps of up to 25%.

We really hope that you enjoy this, our latest, and hardest presenter challenge. Make sure you like and SHARE this video and that you head over to GCN en Español and subscribe!
