Climbs from La Vuelta

Hors Catégorie (HC) is a term used in stage bicycle races to designate a climb that is “beyond categorization”. The term was originally used for those mountain roads where cars were not expected to be able to pass.

Categories are defined by their steepness and length, the HC climb is the most difficult type of climb in the race.
To highlight the Vuelta a España we have created a set of four limited edition prints showing the HC climbs from the years route.
