Bahrain Victorious to Clásica de San Sebastián

Matej Mohorič leads a strong Bahrain Victorious line up to the 42nd edition of the Clásica de San Sebastián. The 224.8km day race starts and ends in San Sebastián, as the riders go over 4,147 vertical meters across six classified climbs. 

Luis León Sánchez joins Mohorič from the Tour, while Arashiro, Buitrago, Mäder, Pernsteiner and Poels make up the lineup and bring options to the team to battle for the win.

Sports Director Neil Stephens will be hoping Mohorič can go one place better after finishing runner-up in 2021: “It’s a really demanding race that starts along the coastline towards the west then turns inland towards the hardest climb, the Erlaitz. Then Murgil- Tontorra, before the descent into San Sebastián.

This year we are hoping to go one better than last year with Matej. We expect it to be a demanding race with attacks right from the start. Alongside Matej, we’ve got Gino Mäder, who is hoping to be there in the final, and Luis León Sánchez, who is coming off a solid Tour de France, which gives us options depending on how the race pans out.”
