The organisers of Itzulia Basque Country have announced the invited teams for the 2021 edition of the race.

The Spanish race will be held between the fifth and the tenth of April and its organisers have had a difficult time trying to choose the teams that will receive the wildcards to be in it. Five teams belonging to the ProTeam tear will be at the start line in Bilbao, where the race will kick off with an individual time trial.

The 19 teams that are part of the WorldTour get an automatic invitation and the race has decided to give away the wildcards to Total Direct Energie (France), Caja Rural-Seguros RGA (Spain), Burgos-BH (Spain), Euskaltel-Euskadi (Spain) and Equipo Kern Pharma (Spain).

"The UCI ProTeams are getting better and better and we believe they should be supported and invited to races such as Itzulia," explained Julian Eraso, director of Itzulia. "We are sure that all of the teams will be competitive and put on a good show."
