ALBERCUTX

On the road to the Cap de Formentor lighthouse, this 3km climb can be extended by taking a right at the car park, a small road which climbs even higher. The road is not that great, but the view at the top over the bay of Pollença is definitely worth it.

💡 Coaching tip

After a less intense and shorter ride on Wednesday, you should have recovered from your efforts of the first part of the week. Now is the time to give everything you have. Four climbs on the menu today, including a spectacular finish up to Puig Maria!

09:00

Briefing

🔜 Located at the northern end of the island, the Cap de Formentor and its famous lighthouse have established themselves over the years as must-sees. Despite the rather modest distance, don't expect an easy ride. The two climbs and a route that's never flat should seriously challenge you.

💡 Coaching tip

“Training is a combination of stress and rest. Most athletes are pretty good at stress. But not so much at the rest part”, says Joe Friel. Today, we will learn how to actively rest with a slow-steady pace ride.

Briefing

🔜 For this recovery / coffee ride, we will take you to Cycling Planet, in Alaró, one of the most famous cycling café on the island. No climb on the menu today, but a warm coffee and a delicious piece of cake are waiting for you at Cycling Planet. Enjoy!

COLIN EARNSHAW

As a member of Caithness Cycling Club, the most northerly cycling club on the British mainland, Colin may not have the climbs but he has the winds to train against. He loves cycling in all forms from road, TT, gravel, cycle cross to single speed grass track racing, all undertaken with enthusiastic effort but with little structure and nutrition - that's where Sa Calobra CC comes in. Goal for the week - to enjoy every moment and maybe learn a little.

JOHN BROTHERTON

John has been a helicopter pilot for 38 years having flown in the Royal Navy and UK Coastguard. A keen sportsman who turned to running and triathlon after an injury forced an end to his rugby playing days. He now rides for fun with his local club and is enjoying teaching his 22 month old daughter Darcey to ride.

NICHOLAS BROUSSEAU

Nicholas started riding his bike after a 25 year break just before the pandemic. With a lot of discipline and dedication, he cycled more than 7000 km in his first year and lost 12kg. He thinks (but nobody believes it) that if he were to lose two more kilos he could climb as fast as fellow Canadian Michael Woods. As a returning rider, he will be the vice captain this week.

MILANCO BIKOV

Milanco has been an IT geek since he can remember. He discovered cycling 2 years ago and can't believe he didn't do it before. Now, his life revolves around cycling. He has improved a lot since and aims for more, but maybe he is just kidding himself. “If I can ride like this in 10 years, I will be very happy”, he often says as his cycling journey has no signs of stopping. Ride more, ride fast, ride further.

NORBERT SOKOLOWSKI

As an average IT guy from Brussels, Norbert was born and raised in Poland. Metalhead and a good coffee addict, he has been cycling since 2020. He cycles just for fun, and does not take part in any competitions, but he has trained hard and lost a lot of weight to be in shape for this week.

DECLAN SMYTH

A soccer and fitness mad Irishman, Declan shall now leave the cold winter months of the Wicklow mountains to take on Sa Calobra with his fellow unknown teammates. As he tries to hang on to his football career, he has found himself in the depths of cycling and has found a new passion that was always lingering in the shadows... He now realises that cycling not only brings you to dark places but also removes the age factor, as it means nothing once you clip in.

3 days ago 🇫🇷

THIERRY MORISE

Thierry has only been cycling for 4 years, but he enjoys it a lot and likes to push his limits a little further each year. A solo endurance rider, he is able to ride alone for 200km but also enjoys riding fast in a peloton or taking pulls. More of a puncheur than a climber, he comes to Mallorca to learn and prepare for his next big challenges of the year by bike...

MORITZ SCHMALE

When he’s not out on his gravel bike — reconfigurable as a makeshift full carbon road bike — Moritz visits a bouldering gym or does functional strength training at home. Using a bike to commute to work before the pandemic, he noticed he was missing the daily exercise while working from home, so he finally invested in a gravel bike in 2021. This kickstarted a new interest in exercising, even outside of cycling. In 2022, Moritz competed in the amateur race of the Hamburg Cyclassics and joined a local cycling club.

💡 Coaching tip

“For our first long ride of the week, it will be important to pace your effort. There are two pretty long climbs today, and the wind could invite itself to the party. If this is the case, focus on the data of your powermeter and accept riding much slower if there is a head wind.”

3 days ago

Briefing

🔜 Today, let's explore the southern part of the island, where we will take small roads through the Mallorcan countryside to avoid traffic. Our destination? The Puig de Randa and its famous 13th century sanctuary and the sanctuary of Sant Salvador, which offer a spectacular view over the entire south of the island.

💡 Coaching tip

“We know it can be tempting to impress your new teammates and go full gas on the first day, but don’t! Travelling is tiring and there is a long week ahead of us. If you want to get the most out of the training camp and enjoy your week here, you have to ease yourself into it.”

“A game changer”

Have you ever ride with power? Join one of our cycling camps to give it a try. All our bikes are equipped with a powermeter, and our Ride Captain Aurelien will teach you how to use it during the week! 👇

“Riding with a powermeter is just a game changer. You don't have to be a pro to benefit from having one. I even think that less experienced riders benefit more from riding with power. You can pace better, and avoid putting yourself in the red zone if you rely on numbers more than on your perception of the effort.”

You can't improve it! Everything is in place for the FTP test. Ready guys?

Welcome message from the Ride Captain

“You all come from different countries, have different levels and maybe even different expectations about this camp. Most of you don't know each other, but you all share the same passion for cycling. We have put all our heart and energy into creating this team, for you, and for all the riders who will follow you. Now it's up to you to bring it to life! You are the Sa Calobra Cycling Club!”

“A personal challenge rather than a race”

Don't overly worry about the FTP test or your position in the peloton. The climbs are a personal challenge rather than a race against your new SCCC team mates, and the atmosphere is always very supportive and fun.

“Nothing to worry about”

I was a bit apprehensive before the camp, especially being female and going on my own – would the others be stronger than me, would I hold them up, could I keep up etc. As it was, I had nothing to worry about – yes, the guys were strong but the support and camaraderie kept everyone going and it didn’t matter that some were stronger than others. We all looked out for each other and we were all challenged in different ways.

“I was looking for a camp that can give me a boost but at the same time feels like a safe if things go belly up. And that is what Sa Calobra Cycling Club provides. It is more than a camp, it's a community, and if we want, you can find friends there. I wish you all an amazing week!”
