Three days of great competition in a new race that was born in Biscay just a few days before the Giro Baby
Bizkaia Saria 2019
From 7 to 9 June
From the union is born the strength and from the good understanding between three already existing cycling events a new competition is born within the Basque amateur calendar. The new Bizkaia Saria, which is held under the formula of challenge on the roads of Bizkaia, will capture the attention of the amateur field with three days of great demand. “Elkar Kirolak and the Sociedad Ciclista Valentín Uriona de Mungia have joined forces to launch a new organisational adventure that is born with the will to make their races stronger and to position themselves as a new reference in the category”, emphasise the project’s promoters.
For the Kometa Cycling Team, Bizkaia Saria has arrived within the framework of an intense month of competitions that will reach its zenith in a couple of weeks with the presence at the Giro d’Italia under23. The amateur formation of the Alberto Contador Foundation starts with seven riders who will compete in the Italian round with cyclists who have come from competing in the no less demanding Vuelta a Navarra.
The Spaniard Joan Martí Bennassar, the Spaniard Carlos García, the Andalusian Sergio García, the Catalan Álex Martín, the Galician Alejandro Regueiro and the Asturians Edu Pérez-Landaluce and Yago Segovia make up a group of guarantees to look for the protagonism on a track that, possibly, offers its most complicated day on Saturday, in a Txuma Memorial that has almost 2,500 metres of positive difference in level.
“We’ve been doing the last hard training at home”, explains Carlos García, who points to the Giro d’Italia team. “We are going to Biscay with a lot of desire to be able to maintain the competition rhythm and play a good role. We have to be at the top of our game in the Giro”.

8 June: Memorial Txuma / Erandio-Erandio (132 km).
