The Malecon of Zarautz, one of the emblematic places of this town in Gipuzkoa, will be the starting point of the 58th edition of the Itzulia.
The first meters of the first stage of the Itzulia will be covered in the coastal promenade of Zarautz. Before that, the presentation of the teams will take place in that same place from 11:49 to 13:04.
The 154 cyclists will start the neutralized route at 13:18. The neutralized route has 2,1 kilometers and will pass through the Malecón, Bañeru street, Nafarroa street until reaching the road N-634 toward San Sebastian. The real route of this first stage will start in Ito, at the kilometer 17 of this road.
The first stage will also end in Zarautz, but in another emblematic place: the Villa Munda buiding. The arrival will be between 17:18 and 17:42 but we will not have to wait until that time to see the riders because they have to pass by finish line twice, at kilometers 97 and 124.1 of the route.
Likewise, the second stage of the Itzulia will also depart from the Malecón of Zarautz but that day the peloton will head towards Bermeo.
The departure gathering and signature of the second stage will take place in the same place of the previous day from 12:21 to 13:21. The neutralized route of 1,65 kilometers will start at 13:34 repeating the same route as the first stage (Malecón, Bainero street, Nafarroa street). But this time, the riders will take the road N-634 toward Getaria and there will start the real route of 157,2 kilometers with arrival in Bermeo.
