Donostia San Sebastian Klasikoa 2019 - Overview

 

Race organisers of the men's WorldTour Clásica Ciclista San Sebastián have launched their inaugural women's race Donostia San Sebastian Klasikoa held on August 3 in Spain.

The race is UCI 1.1 and will have the same start-finish area as the men's race in Donostia. The 126.7km route will also include much of the same climbs; Jaizkibel (category 1), Arkale (category 3), Mendizorrotz (category 2) and finish over the Murgil Tontorra (category 2).

Organisers Ciclistas Euskadi-OCETA, announced last July that they intended to promote a women's race in 2019.

The organisation made the announcement at the San Sebastián City Council as part of the official presentation ahead of the men's race, later won by Julian Alaphilippe. Organisers said that the overall goal was to eventually build the new women's race to the highest level, aiming to become part of the Women's WorldTour.
