Jon Izagirre Insausti (born 4 February 1989) is a Spanish professional road bicycle racer and cyclo-cross rider, who rides for UCI ProTeam Movistar Team. He is sometimes referred to as Ion Izagirre, due to both Ion and Jon relating to the Basque language form for John.
Born in Ormaiztegi in the Basque Country, Izagirre comes from a family of professional cyclists, as both his father José Ramón and brother Gorka have competed professionally on the roads and in cyclo-cross. Having joined the Euskaltel-Euskadi team – alongside brother Gorka – from the 2011 season onwards, Izagirre won his first professional races in the spring of 2012; he won the individual time trial at the Vuelta a Asturias in April, before taking a victory during his Grand Tour début at the Giro d'Italia. During the sixteenth stage, Izagirre made a solo breakaway with 4 km (2.5 mi) remaining, before winning the stage by sixteen seconds from his nearest competitor.
Both Izagirre brothers were signed by the Movistar Team for the 2014 season.
