Less than three weeks since entries opened, and with five months still to go, the international sportive Mallorca 312 - Giant - Taiwan has already sold out all 4,000 places. 

The repeated 50% growth in the number of participants since the events' inception is testament to the Mallorca 312's success and popularity amongst cyclists worldwide. 

On the 30 April 2016 a truly international field from over 40 countries will be lining up for the start in front of the hotel Iberostar Playa de Muro to attempt the 312km circumnavigation of the Balearic Island by bike. 

The event has proved extremely effective in terms of boosting tourism in the off season, a fact underlined by a study of the University of the Balearic Islands which estimates a direct economic impact of more than 9 million euro to the region. 

All that remains for those lucky enough to have secured a place for the seventh edition of the Mallorca 312 is train and prepare for the challenge ahead: 312 km or 167 km.

As in previous years, participants will be able to decide at kilometre 90 if they ride the Mallorca312 - Giant - Taiwan (circumnavigating the whole island) or the "reduced" Mallorca167 - Huerzeler Bicycle Holidays. This option cuts back through the Serra de Tramuntana but still clocks 167km - over 100 miles. 

For those who didn't secure a place, the organisers have opened a waiting list on the official website. 

We are still waiting to find out who will be unveiled as the guest of honour for 2016, following in the pedal strokes of the likes of Pedro Horrillo, Joseba Beloki, Ă"scar Freire, Joseba Beloki, Miguel IndurĂ¡in and Sean Kelly in wearing the coveted 312 event number. 

Cyclosport's Nick Gregory took part in the event in 2014. Read his review HERE. We also named it amonst the 'Top 5 Overseas Sportives'.
