What You Get


You will receive 16 weeks of carefully planned bike workouts that can be completed in your own time, outdoors or on the cycling platform of your choice, structured in a way to fit in with your busy life

The plan will take you through several phases from building a strong, solid base, to gradually increasing your threshold power with weekly and monthly goals


Build that important muscular endurance so that you can make the finish line within the cut off time

During this phase, we will be building Muscular Endurance which is essential for completing the event and making those strict cut off times. You will be given the exact training needed to complete the challenge along with event-specific sessions. 


Know how much to rest and what to expect on the day so that you arrive at the start line in top form with all the knowledge needed!

This is what will make or break your event. Proceed with caution! You cannot build any fitness during this time but you sure can lose a great deal of form! During this time you will learn valuable advice on travelling to Mallorca and everything you need to know ahead of the event. You can then enjoy the day and have a stress free trip! 


You will be invited to join the Academy’s private virtual group rides. A social event that will allow you to get to know your fellow academy scholars as well getting to know some of the roads you will be riding on, all while building up that crucial aerobic base.

The majority of the rides will take place using the RGT cycling software platform, allowing you to experience some of the course routes although there will be Zwift options available.


You will be invited to join other academy scholars online in an exclusive private Facebook community. Here you will have access to the official Mallorca 312 coach who will answer any questions and provide support throughout the duration of the plan.

You will have the opportunity to virtually meet other event participants and participates in friendly discussions leading up to the event.


Members will have exclusive access to a number of helpful online resources such as videos and articles on a variety of event-specific topics such as travel guides, nutritional advice, mental techniques etc.

All advice is provided by experts who have completed the event several times to help give you the edge.
