Etapa 2

Mallabia – Mallabia

“This stage includes typical Biscayan orography with continuous uphill and downhill sections, including five Cat. 3 passes and one Cat. 2 pass. It will be a difficult stage for the leaders of the different teams to take control of the race as there are no demanding climbs to break the peloton. The stage will end with a slightly uphill finish.” Roberto Laiseka

summary of stage 2




Mallabia is proud to be part of the Itzulia Basque Country 2022, an internationally-renowned race where the best cyclists of the world-wide peloton compete, and so meaningful to us both traditionally and historically.

The passion for cycling is one of the most deeply rooted sport disciplines in our country, and one of the sports that arouses the greatest interest in Mallabia. In fact, we are known for important cyclists such as Mikel Pradera or Gorka Arrizabalaga. And our proximity to the traditional cycling race, “Bicicleta eibarresa”, probably explains the reason why the Itzulia is the event which the people of Mallabia most identify with.

Our town is, and will always be, committed to sports in general and, at this particular moment, we feel fully committed to the Itzulia 2022. We see it as a great opportunity to offer both the participants and the followers of cycling, the chance to witness a high-level sporting event, and at the same time, enjoy our environment while reinforcing the image of Mallabia abroad.
