- Euskotren to present the ‘Special Prize’ at the Men’s and Women’s Clásica.
- Will award the trophy to the winners of the Men’s and the Women’s Clásica 2021.
Euskotren, the leading transport operator in the Basque Country, is the new sponsor of the Special Prize at the men’s and women’s Clásica San Sebastián. This new collaboration consolidates the women’s and men’s races on the World Tour calendar.
The transport company will award the winners with the Euskotren Special Prize on the podium of the Boulevard de San Sebastián.
“We are thrilled to see home-grown organisations back cycling as a sport and as a means of transport. It is important to have local support when organising races, as without sponsors, partners or local fans it would not be possible to organise these races that are seen all over the world”, stated Julián Eraso, president of OCETA.
Iñaki Arriola, Regional Minister of Territorial Planning, Housing and Transport, commented that “The Basque Country loves cycling, which has surpassed the sporting domain and now constitutes a healthy lifestyle and a form of sustainable mobility that we support at the Basque Government. That’s why we must resume competitions like this, which make cycling visible, both as a sport and as a means of transport”.
Euskotren will be at the 40th edition of the Clásica San Sebastián on 31 July, which will cover 224 kilometres for the men’s race and 139 kilometres for women.
