The Quebrantahuesos route

The ride is 200 kms in length, with 3500 metres of height gained, on closed roads. You will pass through a stunning mix of Spanish and French Pyreneen scenery as you cross from one country to the other through the awe-inspiring mountain passes used in La Vuelta and the Tour de France.

The start takes place in the Spanish town of Sabiñánigo and the route passes over the Col du Somport (1,640m), France 's Col du Marie Blanque (Cat 1) and Col du Portalet (Cat 1, 1,795m) before finishing back in Sabiñánigo.

The event uses electronic chips to guarantee accurate timing and all riders receive a diploma and a gold, silver or bronze medal. Times and diplomas are available within 30 minutes of the finish. Plenty of food and drink, first aid, massage, showers and bike storage and physio are available.

A massive event with unrivalled support

Over 1000 local volunteers help with marshalling and cleaning up afterwards. Emergency helicopters and a fleet of ambulances and paramedic motorbikes are on standby to assist with any injuries.

Many motorbikes and cars patrol the route with professional mechanics on board. An unparalleled provision of food and drink stations with energy bars, cakes, bananas, dried fruit, nuts, sandwiches, sports drinks, Coca-Cola and water. Also there is a post race massage zone.
