José Nazabal


Happy birthday to Jose Nazabal who was born on this day in 1951.

The Spanish rider is best remembered for his 3rd place podium finish in the 1976 Vuelta a Espana behind Jose Pesarrodona and Luis Ocana both of Spain.

In addition, Nazabal won the lesser known GP Navarra in 1976 and Vuelta a Aragón in 1977. He also won stage 3 in the 1977 Tour de France.

​However, Nazabal’s career is not without controversy. Anticipating a positive test result for doping, he abandoned the 1978 immediately after being test, as to avoid the ramifications.
