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


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 five 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] Since his 2014 participation, Zubeldia is also the Spanish rider with the most starts in the Tour de France, a record previously held by two long-term-servants of what is now the Movistar team, 5-time-winner Miguel Indurain, and José Vicente García Acosta.
