Etapa 1

Vitoria-Gasteiz – Labastida

The first stage of contact with Itzulia 2023 with a climb to the Opakua pass, which will decide the first mountain jersey. From this point, the race follows narrow, winding roads until it reaches the Labastida sprint. Thereafter, the air can take centre stage. In theory, the stage is very likely to be decided by a sprint.

Vitoria-Gasteiz has a green lifestyle. This is the motto of the Capital City of the Basque Country, a city with a high quality of life which has known how to grow by combining its medieval past with the development of a sustainable, modern and industrial city. Among its natural heritage, we highlight its Green Belt: 33 kilometers of paths, woods, wetlands and small hills recovered in order to enjoy nature, leisure and sports thanks to the pioneer ecological restoration project which has earned international acclaim for Vitoria-Gasteiz with prestigious awards such as the European Green Capital award (EU, 2012) and the Global Green City Award (U.N., 2019).
