Well my time in Palma for the 2015 season has come to an end but not without some great memories and improvements. I got to spent three awesome days in the mountains of Mallorca training with an ever dwindling group of friends before capping off the week with two days on the water. Some how I squeezed two windsurfing sessions and a gym session in there as well.
The cycling was amazing this year and I got to see more of the island than I ever have. The first day was brutal with two major climbs with some smaller ones added in for fun. The famous St Calobra climb is always mentally and physically demanding and I learnt my limit this time, completely blowing up on the climb going too hard and barely making it home. However Ash was worse off than me, taking a dive on the technical descent and completely ruining his bike and his face.
The next ride was spent on the north of the island for a change with a undulating 80 km ride around the coast. Our last day was spent on the prettiest part of the island doing a 50 km loop through Deia and Valldemossa. It was awesome and although I’m sore now I know come Hyeres I’ll be happy for the hard work.
