Mallorca 312 2017

The Mallorca 312 is one of our favourite sportives, combining an early season schedule, with a monster 312km route that pits riders against just about every type of landscape one can imagine. The Mallorca 312 provides a challenge that will remain with you for life and an achievement to make you the envy of your riding buddies and club mates.

Le Domestique Tours’ Mallorca 312 packages combine this incredible sportive with a private Le Domestique Tours feed station is provided, while our guide team provide full coaching input, pre-race briefings, access to our Masterclass programme, private airport transfers and a small group size to ensure your experience is second to none.

The Mallorca 312’s lap of the island course covers 312km and over 4,000m of climbing, yet can be almost perfectly divided into two halves. The opening half of the course focusses on the mountains of the Tramuntana, with nine mountain pass ascents including the classic Coll de Femenia, Coll de sa Batalla and Puig Major trio. Whereas the second half of the Mallorca 312 leaves the mountains, tackling a much flatter parcours, where wind and group management become the main focus for riders. This race of two halves therefore provides a unique challenge that has features to suit and challenge all riders from the mountain favouring climbers, to the flat land loving time trialists. Riders can also choose to tackle the Mallorca 167, which includes the initial mountain section, before cutting back to the start line via the beautiful roads along the base of the Tramuntana.

Riders are also free to opt to enter the Mallorca 167, which though lacking the distance of it’s bigger sibling, is a superb event in its own right. Perfect for the rider looking to push hard in the stunning scenery of Mallorca, without the dramatic distance of the 312, the 167 provides a unique challenge, perfect for those training for the Etape du Tour or Marmotte amongst many others.

    Supported Riding
    • One of the main benefits of choosing Le Domestique Tours, is our pro-level supported riding service, which is an integral part of all of our packages. However, unless you have ridden with us before, it can be difficult to understand the benefits of this service, so for more information please follow this link http://ledomestiquetours.co.uk.88-208-244-163.jago-staging.com/what-is-supported-riding/
    • We do not enforce an average speed requirement during our tours and will always strive to allow riders to cycle at their own speed (our two van support policy gives us the ability to provide our incredible supported riding service for 99% of the riders on our tours), however if there is a large speed differential between you and the rest of the group, we may require you to depart earlier/later, miss extended stops or in very extreme circumstances, complete sections of the route in the LDT support van.
    • Equally, if you are an extremely fast rider in comparison to the others in your group, or someone who does not like to stop during the course of your riding, we may have to adapt the level of support that we can provide for you.
    • If you are at all concerned about your ability level (whether quicker or steadier than average) prior to signing up to our Mallorca 312 package, please contact us in advance of booking and we will provide further guidance.
  • What are the LDT Masterclasses?

    Across the week we will be running optional masterclasses that focus on the following key areas:

    • Descending – our descending masterclass will help you develop your descending technique, resulting in a far more enjoyable, and above all safe, experience when the road heads down. Building on our vast experience of descending in the mountains we will be holding both theory and practical descending masterclasses.
    • Nutrition – with the proliferation of energy products, it can be difficult to cut through the marketing nonsense and focus on the key facts. We’ll explain the important concepts in an easy to understand format, while debunking a few myths along the way. These classes are invaluable for building a nutrition plan that ensures your training pays off on your event day.
    • Building a training plan – the benefits of following a training plan are huge, but very few riders understand how to build an effective plan based on their goals. We will give you all the tools you need to do so, enabling you to focus on getting the maximum benefit from your training time rather than wasting time on gimmick plans.
    • Multi-day events– for those riders using the camp as a training tool for one of our multi-day tours such as the Raid Pyrenean or King of the Mountains, we will discuss riding and recovery strategies to ensure you are in top form throughout these challenges. Nobody is better placed than us to deliver this advice.
