Sean Kelly To Ride Mallorca 312 This Weekend

by Henry Peacock

"King of The Classics", Sean Kelly, will be participating in the Mallorca 312 Sportive on the 27th April.

 The Irish cyclist, one of the best cyclists in history and furthermore one of the most successful "Classic Riders", knows the island very well thanks to several years in which he has been working side by side with the tour operator SportActive, which offers amateurs a chance to ride alongside King Kelly in Majorca. SportActive have been working with the event since its inception and the club that is attached provided more riders in the 2012 edition than anyone else.
