Clásica de San Sebastián 2019
The Clásica de San Sebastián 2019 is a UCI World Tour professional cycling race on the 3rd August, held in the hilly Basque Country, Spain. The 2019 race is the 39th edition of the race, taking place just one week after the Tour de France.
The race is particularly known for its steep climbs in the Basque mountains as the peloton races through towards the final descent into San Sebastian.
The current title holder is the on-form Julian Alaphilippe (Team Deceuninck - Quick Step), who beat Bauke Mollema (Team Trek - Segafredo) in a sprint in the 2018 race. Rounding off the podium was Anthony Roux (Team Groupama - FDJ).
The 2019 race preview
The Clásica de San Sebastián typically favours powerful climbers and aggressive attackers, featuring the Jaikibel as one of its biggest challenges, before the final descent into San Sebastián. The route includes lots of winding roads and undulating terrain. The tough Jaizkibel climb is often a decisive point of the race.
Before Alaphilippe, Michal Kwiatkowski (Team Ineos, formerly Team Sky) won in 2017, becoming the first Polish rider to do so. Other winners include Mollema in 2016, British rider Adam Yates (Team Mitchelton–Scott) in 2015 and the Spanish World Champion, Alejandro Valverde (Team Movistar), in 2014. Traditionally, Spanish riders have been extremely successful in the race. Thirteen winners have been Spanish, ahead of seven Italian winners and four French and Dutch winners.
Being on the UCI World Tour, the major teams will be competing, so a strong lineup is expected once more. Greg Van Avermaet (CCC Team) came fourth last year and is always a threat in a one-day race. Rigoberto Uran (Team EF Education First) came 6th last year, while Ion Izagirre (Astana Pro Team) placed 7th, while Robert Gesink (Team Jumbo-Visma) came 8th and Steven Kruijswijk (Team Jumbo-Visma) came 9th. Fabio Jakobsen (Team Deceuninck - Quick Step) will also fancy his chances this year.
This year, Spanish supporters will be hoping for a return of the title to Spanish soil.
