The seventh edition of the Mallorca 312 opens entries on Sunday 1 November at noon. The event has enjoyed huge success year on year, and together with high demand for places during pre-registration, this has led the organisers to set a limit of 4,000 participants for 2016. 

Mallorca's biggest sportive will take place on 30 April next year, giving cyclists from around the globe to chance to tackle an extremely challenging 312km lap of the island, including 4,300m of climbing. 

Those who sign up before 31 December will benefit from an early bird offer. 

As with previous years, the registration will be valid both for the Mallorca 312-Giant-Taiwan and for the 'short' version, the 167km Mallorca 167-Huerzeler Bicycle Holidays. This means participants won't have to decide which route they are taking on until the day of the event, when they reach the split point at kilometer 90. 

Participants can book accommodation packages at the Hotel Iberostar Playa de Muro with their event entry, so that they and companions will be able to further enjoy their stay on the island.

Cyclosport's Nick Gregory completed the long route at the 2014 edition of the event. Read his full review HERE 

The Mallorca 312 was certainly tough - the toughest day I've ever had on a bike - but I managed to get round in just over 13hrs, thanks in no small part to an 80km tow from a group of strong local riders who took pity on the hapless foreigner. 

However, the difficulty of the race contrasts with the beauty of the locations it passes through, and there is a crumb of relief in the fact that the topography does become more forgiving as the day wears on, with the mountains giving way to coastal plains. Still, it's a mammoth undertaking that requires a strong mind as much as it does strong legs. 

However, the 312 - as with Mallorca itself - rewards anyone willing to give it a go with a true feast for the senses - stunning views, exquisite food and unforgettable memories.  I will be back again very soon.
