It’s one of the most iconic climbs in Europe: long, steep and stunningly beautiful, but would you want to do a time trial up Sa Calobra?
Whether you’re up for the challenge of powering up the Mallorcan mountain or simply want to take part in the charity event, organiser Dan Marsh would love to see you on the start line.

Dan’s wife Emelie was diagnosed with breast cancer in February and so is hosting this unique event to raise money for two cancer charities – Cancer Research UK and a support charity in Mallorca.
With only 100 places available, time is running out to book your place. Not only will there be a whole load of other amateurs there, you’ll have the chance to test yourself against professional and celebrity riders, including One Pro Cycling’s George Harper and Chris Opie.
Harper and Opie’s boss Matt Prior, the former England cricketer, will dust off his team issue Cervelo S5 for the climb, and former Katusha rider Joan Horrach will also be on the start line.
It’s not for the faint hearted, though, with the climb measuring 9.4km in distance, taking in 26 hairpins and an average gradient of 7.2 per cent.
