In 2015, the Giro d'Italia will be the big goal for Beñat Intxausti will in the Giro d'Italia. In the second half of the year, he wants to return to the Tour de France.

 

Benat Intxuatis has announced his race schedule. According to Biciciclismo, he will make his debut at the Challenge Mallorca and will continue to ride in his home country when he lines up at the Clasica Almerica, Vuelta a Murcia andVuelta a Andalucia. His first WorldTour race is the Volta a Catalunya before he lines up at the Vuelta al Pais Vasco where he is a past podium finisher. The one-day race Klasika Primavera and the Vuelta a Asturias will be his final races before he lines up at the Giro d'Italia.

 

 

The Basque is set to return to the Italian grand tour where he will try to repeat his success from 2013 when he won a stage, wore the maglia road and finished 8th overall. He will share leadership duties with Ion Izaguirre, Jesus Herrada and Juan Jose Lobato as Nairo Quintana and Alejandro Valverde will focus on the Tour de France.

 

According to the schedule, he will reach the Giro with 23 days of racing in his legs which is a bit more than the 18 he had in 2013. Along the way, the Vuelta al Pais Vasco will be an important race for him. He made his breakthrough in the Basque race in 2010 when he was second behind Chris Horner and he was 4th in 2011 and 8th in 2013. The Klasika Primavera takes place in his local area and is another important event. He had fond memories of the Vuelta a Asturias too as he finished on the podium in 2010 and won the race in 2012.

 

 

After an inconsistent 2014 season where he was 3rd in the Tour de Pologne and 6th in the Tour de Romandie but failed to reach hib best level at the Tour de France, he hopes to find his best legs again. He hopes to be back on the starting line in the French grand tour as he wants to assist Quintana and Valverde in their quest to finish on the podium in Paris. Another option is the Vuelta a Espana, a race he has not missed since 2009.
