Club La Santa Cycling Trophy
Club La Santa Cycling Trophy
The Club La Santa Cycling Trophy includes a diverse selection of cycling disciplines: a prologue, a criterium, a hill/mountain climb and a long ride. This year, the Cycling Trophy has moved from its traditional date in September to the middle of December, which is a great time for combining the competition, with a bit of training and a pre-Christmas break, especially when flight prices to Lanzarote are probably the cheapest that they will be all year!
Club La Santa expects a wide variety of cyclists to converge on the island, from professional bikers to weekend warriors and families, for a spectacular and challenging four days of cycle racing. Challenge yourself, measure your cycling training progress and enjoy the spectacular landscape of the Lanzarote Island, together with other cycling enthusiasts.
Cycling Race 1 – Prologue – 4.5 K approx.
The race route consists of one loop, which starts and finishes in Club La Santa. Upon leaving the Stadium, you will turn right, and at the roundabout head left towards Caleta de Caballo, on to Soo and then back to Club La Santa.
Cycling Race 2 – Criterium
30-45 minutes cycling race circuit plus two more loops; each loop is approximately 2km, along a stretch of road outside Club La Santa.
Cycling Race 3 – Hill/mountain Climb – Tabayesco – 9.5 K
The course, in the beautiful North of the island, starts with a consistent slope that gradually steepens (550m vertical climbing, 6% slope). We advise you to ride to the bottom of the climb by bike, which is about 40km, as a warm up. However, there will also be transportation available should you prefer it.
On the return journey to Club La Santa, you will enjoy stunning views as a reward for your effort in the climb (there will also be the option of using the provided transport for the return journey).
