Throughout February the Viva Blue Hotel will be participating actively in two major mountain bike events as the official hotel for the MTB Alcudia 2016 4 hour endurance trial and the MTB Vuelta a Mallorca.
The MTB Alcudia 2016 4 hours Endurance Trial will be taking place on 14th February on the Puig de Sant Martí circuit, situated just a short distance from the hotel and featuring a challenging layout based on short steep slopes. This is a relay event, in which competitors take part in male, female or mixed pairs. The teams can tailor their relay strategies as they wish in order to complete the highest possible number of laps. There must be one member of the team pedalling at all times and the other resting in the pit areas.
Remember that the Viva Blue hotel has MTB bikes available for hire.
Details of the route are available here.
Mas Bici Shop is behind the organisation of the first ever edition of this innovative mountain bike trial, which will be taking place between 26th and 28th February in two different categories, thereby adapting to the full range of cyclist profiles.
The non-stop trial is undoubtedly the toughest, recommended only for highly-trained mountain bikers. The challenge consists of a 351 km race around the island of Majorca’s entire coastline. Participants will be treated to views of Majorca’s most breathtaking scenery, including the Serra de Tramuntana and Llevant mountain ranges, the Massanella Estate, Alaró Castle or the Betlem Chapel, to name but a few.
