Clasica San Sebastian 2023 preview
Remco Evenepoel, Simon Yates and Ben Healy are some of the stellar talents that will be jostling for glory at the 2023 Clásica de San Sebastián, more commonly known as the Clasica San Sebastian or San Sebastian Classic. As a two-time winner and the reigning champion, the Belgian rider is undoubtedly the man to beat, and his near-50km solo a year ago may well inspire a string of premature breakaway attempts.
The 230.3km route incorporates more than 4,000 vertical metres, the toughest of which are to be found on the Murgil Tontorra, immediately before the final descent and flat finish.
The Alto Iturburu (6.6km at 5.3%) is the first obstacle of note, but it and the subsequent climbs up the Alkiza (4.4km at 6.2%) and Alto de Jaizkibel (6.9km at 6.2%) are merely warmup opportunities for what's to come. The Erlaitz (3.8km at 10.6%) is short yet anything but sweet, and it's here that the peloton is likely to become splintered.
Next comes the Mendizorrotz (4.1km at 7.1%), which features a gruelling middle section (2km at 11.3%), and the now iconic Murgil (2.1km at 10.1%). Its steepest section cranks things up to a brutal 22%, and it's here that the majority of contenders' hopes of victory will be dashed.
