Bilbao stands out as a stage hunter and stage race cyclist

Pello Bilbao, born in 1990 in the Basque town of Guernica, started his WorldTour career with the Basque team Euskaltel-Euskadi. After this team left the peloton at the end of 2013, he continued his career at Caja-Rujal, where he developed into a puncher, excelling in hilly races with a strong finish. Bilbao achieved notable results, especially in his home country.

His impressive performances caught the attention of Astana, who signed him at the end of 2016. With Astana, Bilbao gradually transitioned from a puncher to a stage race cyclist. His abilities as a general classification rider shone in the Giro d'Italia, where he impressively finished sixth overall in 2018, just three places behind his then team leader Miguel Ángel López. Subsequent achievements with his current team, Bahrain Victorious, include two fifth places in the Giro and a ninth overall in the Tour de France.

However, Bilbao was not just a stage racer; he was also a successful stage hunter. Without being the best climber, his daring racing style, excellent descending skills, and strong finish helped him achieve several notable victories. His achievements include two stage wins in his beloved Giro d'Italia, a stage in the Tour of the Basque Country, and the Critérium du Dauphiné. He was most successful in the Tour of the Alps, winning three stages, including two in 2022.
