Haimar Zubeldia Agirre (born 1 April 1977) is a Basque professional road racing cyclist who rides for UCI ProTeam Trek Factory Racing.[3]

Biography[edit]

Born and raised in Usurbil, Gipuzkoa, Zubeldia currently resides in the neighboring village of Zarautz.[4] His younger brother Joseba Zubeldia also competed as a professional racing cyclist.[5]

At the age of twenty-one, Zubeldia turned professional with Euskaltel-Euskadi in 1998. His first success were in 2000, when he won the Euskal Bizikleta, and finished second overall in the Critérium du Dauphiné Libéré. In the following years, Zubeldia rode to four top-ten finishes in the Tour de France, and two more in the Vuelta a España. However, despite these high placings, Zubeldia did not win races during this period; after his win in 2000 in the Euskal Bizikleta, it took him ten years to win again, until he won the Tour de l'Ain.[6]
