The 2019 Clásica de San Sebastián

The Clásica de San Sebastián and Clásica de San Sebastián Femenina (the women’s race) take place in and around the city of San Sebastián (or Donostia, in the local Basque language).

Staged just a week after the Tour de France, the race features lots of climbing and favours Grand Tour-type riders. The 2018 edition of the men’s race was won by none other than Tour de France yellow jersey wearer Julian Alaphilippe.

2019 marks the debut of the women’s race, which ultimately aims to become part of the UCI Women’s WorldTour.
