After a failed launch of the first Itzulia Women’s stage race in 2021, the new Women’s WorldTour three-day race takes center stage this year from May 13-15. A total of 22 teams, including 12 of the teams on the top tier, will line up for the Basque race.

The race route travels a total of 363.6km and passes through all three territories of Euskadi – Alava, Bizkaia and Gipuzkoa. There are 13 classified mountain climbs and six intermediate sprints scattered across the stages, with a familiar look on the third and final day as it will finish along the same route that organisers used for the Clásica San Sebastián.

The race opens with a 105.9km stage from Vitoria-Gasteiz to Labastida. The first categorized climb, category 3 Zaldiaran, strikes immediately with the crest of the climb coming just 5.4km from the start. The first intermediate sprint at Bodegas Soaguen is on a slight uphill at kilometer 44.5, and the road goes upward from there to a pair of obstacles, the second-category Mirador de Rivas (5.5km at 5.5 per cent) followed immediately by the third- category Herrar (6.8km at 5.3 per cent).
