The 2020 edition of the Tour of the Basque Country was scheduled to set off from Eibar on Monday 6 April to finish in Bilbao on the 11th. Yet, the race was cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Ion Izagirre won his home race in 2019. The Basque rider outgunned Dan Martin and Emanuel Buchmann on GC. So Izagirre remained title holder for an extra year, as the 2020 edition didn’t take place.
