Sa Calobra, Mallorca

[nggallery id=44]Sa Calobra is one of the beautiful spots on the island. The descent down to the small port is thrilling and the climb back up, through the unique grey rock formations, is tough, steep and lovely. On the climb, we split up to do individual 20 minute efforts at threshold. In the last hour of the ride, several of us jumped in behind the car and motorbike to motorpace for an hour. The motorpacing simulates racing and helps us gain some leg speed. Many of the photos were taken by our race coach Kurt Asle Arvesen.
