In stage 6 the route cuts a swath right through the heart of Texas Hill Country, with 1828m of climbing all accrued a few hundred feet at a time it's easy to see where that name comes from. Used as a training ground for many professional riders, this area is a challenging place to race a bike - a climbing stage for sprinters.

All camp vehicles and team vehicles will be available to shuttle racers as they arrive to the race hotel in downtown Austin.
