The Mallorca 312 cut off time is 14 hours for the full 312km distance. The event normally starts at 7 am so need to complete the Mallorca 312 by 9 pm. There are also 2 further checkpoints that you have to reach to be allowed to continue. The first is at 97km with a time of 4h 30min and this section has the most climbing. The second is at 220km and is after 10 hours.
I have found that checkpoints can be hard to achieve if you stop too long. The organisers are strict and the road is blocked if you reach after the cut off time.
Is there a Mallorca 225 time cut off?
Yes, you have 10 hours to complete the Mallorca 225. You have to also make the first cut off at 97km in a time of 4h 30min.
Is there a Mallorca 167 time cut off?
Yes, even though this is the shortest distance it still covers 2,500 ft of climbing! You have 9 hours to complete it.
What speed do I need to ride at?
So to make the Mallorca 312 cut off time you need to average 22km/h (13.6mph). This looks easy but doesn’t take into account any stops or the time it takes to cross the start line.
How to make the Mallorca 312 cut off times
Now, this should be easy as you just ride at a minimum of 22km/h. Yes, this is correct but you are not riding on a flat route. The first section of the event has the most amount of climbing so you will naturally be slower. There are also sections that are faster as riding on the flat. Within my Ultimate Race Day Guide that is included within the Mallorca 312 Academy, I break the event down into each section. This way you know exactly what to expect and what pace to ride at.
Check out my blog on the first attempt. I only made the first cut off by a few minutes!
