MARATHON OPEN MTB GRAN CANARIA, 26 of March, 2011
At our seven-year itch Marathon Open MTB Gran Canaria will take place again in Maspalomas from 26 to 27 of March, 2011. After the great success of the last year this event promises going to be supreme. The must for every European Mountain Bike cyclist develops into a classic sport event at spring and is so a perfect combination of training camp and the first test of strength.
“The same procedure as every year” will be our slogan: the same routes with the well known three distances – 90km Extreme Distance passing through St. Lucía, 65km Classic Distance and 30km Light Distance, the short race on Friday with our subsequent Pasta-party, women's marathon MTB in solidarity with the ACAAM (Association Against Breast Cancer), and also a children's race with a road safety program. And of course there will be lot of Paella and a great after-race-party.
The Expo zone offers place enough not just for the local bike companies but also for the international ones causing a bike festival
atmosphere: la Fiesta de Ciclistas and Gran Canaria invites you. All fans of mountain biking and racing, amateur cyclists and experts, will come together to this exciting event that offers also in 2011 lots of surprises, great prices, tombola and an interesting side-events program.
Following our Marathon Open MTB Gran Canaria tradition, Challenge Canarias will close the race and then winners' victory will be duly celebrated. In addition, the paracycling category will be on for the second time. Cyclists of this category have been the real heroes of the race in 2011 and created the biggest excitement for audiences due to their great efforts.
As a result of a huge public demand, this year a racing marathon will take place on a parallel route on Friday for the first time. So racing cyclists can also upgrade their training camp with this amazing event and enjoy the international and cheerful atmosphere of the Fiesta de Ciclistas with its Expo zone and its Pasta and Paella parties at the Maspalomas Park.
