I have been training out in Mallorca this week trying to avoid the snow and ice back home in the UK. Its early in the Mallorca cycling season with shops and restaurants just on the cusp of opening.
Some riders of the Cannondale-Garmin Pro Cycling Team are here and we’ve been lucky enough to spin our wheels in their draft.
The weather is unsettled with strong winds and rains hampering training. It’s difficult to anticipate the mountains with temperatures plummeting as height is gained and snowfall within the last few days. Care has to be taken cornering downhill on the wet Mallorca tarmac. Falling rocks and jumping goats add to the obstacles on the road.
Good coffee and beautiful sunsets.
