Racing competitively for over 20 years has afforded Masters World Champion cyclist, Grant Potter, many opportunities to travel to some of the best cycling destinations, both across the U.S. and the abroad. Grant was recently featured in Boca Magazine, where he shared his top cycling destinations around the world. It’s probably comes as no surprise that Mallorca, Spain tops his list!
Whether you’ve never heard of Mallorca or it’s been on your bucket list of places to visit, it’s a place every cyclist should experience for themselves at least once. Mallorca is the largest of the three Balearic Islands (maybe you’ve heard of the nearby party destination, Ibiza?) and offers riders of all levels perfect training opportunities. There are mountains in the northern part of the island, while the southern routes tend to be flat. Most climbs are do-able for even a novice rider, while still providing a challenge to the best climbers.
Are you convinced training in Mallorca is worth the flight to Europe, but not sure you want to head over there on your own? Training With Potter is planning their 3rd TWP Mallorca Cycling Camp in March 2018. Ride alongside Grant during this week-long camp, which includes guided training rides on the best routes the island has to offer, accommodations at a 4-star hotel that caters specifically to cyclists and amazing health and performance conscious meals. Improve your fitness, learn tips and techniques to improve your riding, as well as how to properly train and recover. Find out more about TWP Mallorca Training Camps here.

Training with Potter is very excited to announce our first destination cycling trip to Mallorca, Spain on March 17 – 27, 2017. Don’t miss this opportunity to ride with Grant in one of most incredible cycling destinations in the world! After calling this island home over 30 years ago, Grant revisited Mallorca last year and knew he wanted to bring a group back to experience riding there. The simplest way to describe Mallorca, in 2 words—cycling heaven. The terrain is the perfect blend of flat roads, rolling hills and even a few Cat 3, 2 and 1 climbs. Mallorca is so bike friendly that you’ll finish most climbs and find a mountain top cafe ready to serve you hot coffee and cake. The island offers several great cycle hire operations so you don’t event need to pack your bike.
Winter is officially over in March and while still cool by Florida standards the average temperature is 55ºF, with highs into the low 60’s. Mallorca is the winter training home for Team Sky and several other pro teams including RadioShack-Leopard, Garmin-Cannondale, Omega-Pharma Quickstep and Lotto-Belisol.
Space is limited to 10 riders. Click here for all of the details or call Grant at 954-275-6572 to reserve your spot!
