Majorca Spring Training Camp 2012

DEADLINE TO RSVP HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO JANUARY 10th. We are fortunate to have been offered additional hotel space for our trip.

Majorca is a cyclist’s playground. The variety of terrain, the climate, the views … it’s an absolutely unforgettable week of cycling. If you’ve missed this trip in the past, don’t miss it this year! We are once again partnering with GPM10, purveyors of the finest cycling experiences, who base themselves in Majorca every Spring and provide nothing but the best in logistics and support.

  • private airport transfers
  • single board
  • full on-road ride support by race experienced GPM10 staff
  • constant vehicle presence with spare wheels and medical supplies

Day 1 – Arrival day (Saturday). Relaxed ride out to Cap de Formentor, 2-3 hours.‘This is a beautiful but hilly route out to the lighthouse at Cap Formentor, and a great ride to do late in the afternoon’

Day 2 – San Salvador (150km – 6 hours) A fairly flat route inland to San Salvador Monastery – 1 significant climb (7k + poss. bonus climb) “This is a long day but a plenty of time to chat as we will mostly stay as a bunch out to San Salvador after which it is every man for himself for the climb to the Monastery. There are grand views from the top and across the island with a nice cafe to have lunch before the ride back”

Day 3 – Sa Calobra (85km) First day in the mountains – Sa Calobra via Selva – “The most spectacular descent on the island with a 9km (700m) climb back up from sea level”

Day 4 – Deia and Valldemossa (140km) Mountain and costal ride via Lluc – Coll de Puig Major -Deia – Banyalbufar – Coll d’ es Pi – Coll de sa Gremola. ‘We ran this ride for the first time last year, which everyone thought was very tough but worth it for the long descent off the Coll de Puig Major into Soller. Deia is beautiful but the coastal road to Valdemossa is very hilly… if there is southerly wind the ride back across the island will be testing.”

Day 5 – Rest day – “Nice gentle spin in the morning then do your own thing or relax by the pool”

Day 6 – The Classic mountain loop (160KM) The Longest Day’ – 160km, 7+hrs Major Mountain Day!! – 3 major climbs (25-30k). “This is the classic mountain loop and used by many pro teams on training camps and always features as the BIG mountain stage in the UCI Tour of Mallorca.”

Day 7 – Coastal ride to Arta 100km – Bunch ride out to Arta and back. “Once we reach Arta there is a technical climb and descent to a remote monastery followed by a nice lunch stop before heading back.”

  1. Okay so I am interested. Bring my own bike or do you supply one? Have a Serotta Ottrott, do you have similar rides for your travel guests?
