History edit

The race was inaugurated in 1951, but was limited to local competition. It was rebranded after Spanish cyclist Miguel Induráin in 1998. In 2005, the race was upgraded to a 1.1 event on the UCI Europe Tour. For 2007 and 2008 the race was further upgraded to a 1.HC event. The race became part of the new UCI ProSeries in 2020. These higher grades have attracted an increasingly competitive and international field of racers.

The race often loops through the city of Estella-Lizarra, in the Spanish region of Navarre. The modern race always includes several challenging climbs and thus tends to favor a fast all-rounder, rather than a climber or a pure sprinter.[2]

Hortensio Vidaurreta, Miguel María Lasa, Juan Fernández, Ángel Vicioso, and Alejandro Valverde share the record for most wins with three each.[3]
