The 32nd Clásica de San Sebastián

The big Olympics show is over and now attention turns to the final Grand Tour of the season, La Vuelta (August 18th)...

That will have to wait! Tomorrow is the one-day Clásica de San Sebastián in the scenic and hilly Basque country of Spain. Favorites will line up for the chance for a win: Sylvain Chavanel, Simon Gerrans, Rigoberto Uran and Joaquin Rodriguez.. Philippe Gilbert will not be back to defend his title, in his place Greg Van Avermaet (third last year) will lead BMC.

This race is 234 kilometers long with two challenging climbs (climb twice) the Alto Jaizkibel (156km) and the Alto de Arkale (219km) ... who will win the famous Txapela hat?

Gilbert won't be back to defend...
