The official route for the Clásica San Sebastián 2024 announced

  • The Clásica to include Pilotegi on the new climb to Igeldo and remove Murgil. 
  • The 2024 edition will be 236 km long, with 7 scoring mountain passes. 
  • The start and finish lines move to Zurriola Avenue, opposite the Kursaal.  

Today, Monday 8 July, the race organisers announced the official route for the Clásica San Sebastián 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 début at the Clásica, 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.  

Another new feature involves the start and finish areas moving to Zurriola Avenue, opposite the Kursaal Conference Centre. This edition of the Clásica coincides with the Semana Grande de San Sebastián. Therefore, the race infrastructure will be set up on Zurriola. The winner will wear the txapela with Zurriola beach and the sea as backdrops.
