Route 2024

The route has changed again due to road disruptions and safety concerns. Riders must cover 236 km this year, 6 km more than last year, to clinch the txapela in Zurriola. The race will include 7 scoring mountain passes and a few surprises: Andazarate, Azkarate, Urraki, Alkiza, Jaizkibel, Erlaitz and Pilotegi. The latter is a new climb that will dƩbut at the ClƔsica, replacing Murgil. Pilotegi, with slopes of up to 27%, is even more demanding than Murgil or Bordako tontorra. This edition will include 2 intermediate sprints: one at the first finish line checkpoint, and the other at the reverse finish line checkpoint at 219.5 kilometres.

Departure

Donostia-San SebastiƔn

Any excuse is a good reason to visit San Sebastian or Donostia, its name in Euskera or Basque language; the oldest in all Europe, the prime example of Basque culture. Beyond the inimitable beauty of La Concha Bay, which so fascinated royalty at the beginning of the last century and continues to captivate everyone who casts an eye over it today.

The city is the stage for innovative gastronomy that has gained fame the world over, has a wide range of festivals that have made it an authentic cultural phenomenon, and has an active and healthy lifestyle that is very in touch with the natural resources it offers.
