Etapa 1

Irun – Irun

The time trial returns to the Itzulia during a short and not very demanding stage but with several steep climbs. The first leg will be vital to get off to a good start and set a good pace. There is a short, cobbled section with a 10% gradient right at the start. That should separate the wheat from the chaff. After several ups and downs, begins the only ascent of the stage, with an elevation of 1.7km at 5.2% that will have to be ridden flat out. From there, the race crosses the length of the Olaberria neighbourhood downhill until the ramp up to the town hall square. The favourites are expected to be close, barring any surprises.
