What to expect
Training The emphasis on this training camp is ultracycling, and riding in Mallorca on the most iconic routes such as the Mallorca 312km, Sa Colobra, Puig Major, the Orient is the best place to do it. You will also be riding during both day and night, with support. Solo riders will cover distances of up to 300km while team racers will have shorter rides with emphasis on repeated efforts.

Want to bring a crew member? A camp for all, not just riders. Crew members are an important part of ultracycling events and we have created this camp to help prepare them for racing too. Crew members can take part in training sessions either in support of the riders or if they are cyclists they can also ride out on training sessions.

Why Mallorca?

Mallorca has become one of the most popular cycling desinations in the world. Thousands of cyclists of all abilities come to the island every year. It is one of the few places where you can share the road with pro riders and grand tour winners. Here you can tackle the same climbs, cycle the same routes and perhaps see how you can match up to their times! Despite its small size there are many opportunities for climbing and more scenic coastal riding. The scenery is outstanding. The beaches are magnificiant.
