Mallorca Training Camp - April 2015

Chapeau! are delighted to launch our Island training camp based at the fantastic 4 star Eco Resort of Club Pollentia, a 50 minute transfer from Palma airport.

This training camp presents a great opportunity for some relaxed blue sky riding and early season mileage building. This is peak week for the island with many Pros and amateurs alike fine-tuning for the Grand Tours and big sportives, including Mr Wiggins who resides just up the road. 

We will average 100-120kms/day including at least 2 categorised climbs, so around 600kms total for the camp,  It also includes an opportunity to ride the famous ‘312’ round island sportive on the Saturday (which includes a more reasonable (167km) ‘Half option’) for those keen to get some big miles in and see some former Tour Kings in action ( Miguel Indurain and Oscar Freire often lead out). 

For those who haven’t ridden here before the Tranmuntan National Park is the highlight, with quality Cat 1 climbing straight out of the Team Sky training manual, scenic mountain and harbourside coffee stops and ideal training weather, averaging 22-25oC in late April. 

We also have the added bonus of relatively early finishing to enjoy the quality sports facilities of the club and surrounding beachfront, with a heated outdoor training pool ( rare at this time of year), gyms, tennis courts, kitesurfing school etc. The local towns of Alcudia and Porto Pollentia are also great for late lunching in the numerous Cycle Cafes and waterfront bistros, or a dip in the Med (averages 19-20oC at this time).

The prices includes transfers for you and your bike from Palma airport on the evening of Wednesday April 22nd, returning Monday evening on the 27th, 4 star accommodation in twin garden rooms at Club Pollentia, breakfast and evening meals, guiding, briefings, a following support vehicle and the chance to enter the ‘312’ full or half distance sportive on the Saturday.

For those who prefer hiring a bike this can be arranged either via the club with 2 hire centres or in town.

Price based on Half board and sharing is £675.00 (5 nights and 5 days riding)
