Intxausti was born in Amorebieta-Etxano, Biscay. In 2012, he won the Vuelta a Asturias and finished 10th overall in the Vuelta a España despite working for his team leader, Alejandro Valverde. In 2013, Intxausti won stage 16 in the Giro d'Italia after being part of a breakaway and later finished 8th overall. He also had the leaders' jersey for one day. In the Tour of Beijing, Intxausti won the only mountain stage and claimed the general classification victory.
After five seasons with Movistar, in September 2015 Team Sky announced that Intxausti would join them in 2016 on an initial two-year contract. However, after a promising start to 2016, Intxausti's career became blighted with illness and was unable to race for extended periods. In 2019, he moved to the lower-level Euskadi–Murias team. In January 2020, he announced his retirement from cycling.
