The Donostia-Donostia Klasikoa — Clásica San Sebastián-San Sebastián (San Sebastián Classic) is a cycle race that has been held every summer since 1981 in San Sebastián, Spain. The 2016 edition was won by Bauke Mollema. It is traditionally a climbers' race, with several famous Grand Tour stars claiming the race.

Clásica de San Sebastián is famous for its spectacular views of the coastline and its winding, undulating terrain which strongly favours aggressive riding. The current race route is approximately 220 kilometres in length and includes the tough Alto de Jaizkibel climb at around the 200 kilometre mark. This is usually the decisive point of the race. It was a round of the UCI Road World Cup (which ran from 1989 to 2004) and has since been part of its successors, the UCI ProTour and since 2011 the UCI World Tour.
