Quebrantahuesos 2015

18th to 21st June 2015

Guaranteed entry into the 2015 Gran Fondo Quebrantahuesos, Spain's biggest cyclo sportive is now available with a travel package through Sports Tours International.
Book your place now for the 2015 Quebrantahuesos which takes place on Saturday the 20th of June 2015.

Also called 'The Bonebreaker' you may have seen this event featured in the recent documentary on TV.

As this event passes through precious areas of natural beauty and for the participant's safety, the number of cyclists is limited. For this reason and given the high demand of applications to enter, there is a lottery. We can offer guaranteed entry into this iconic Spanish Cyclo-Sportive however.

The race distance is 205km and there will be 3500 meters of vertical ascent on the menu.

The route will take you over the following three main climbs:

  • Col du Somport (1604m)
  • Col du Marie Blanque (1035m)
  • Col du Portalet (1795m)

Usually direct entry into this event is not possible as you have to try and get in through a lottery. At Sports Tours International we can now offer you guaranteed entry with front starting grid.

Our 3 night travel package includes guaranteed entry plus transport to and from Barcelona airport plus hotel accommodation with breakfast and evening meal near the start and finish in Sabinanigo.

We can offer travel packages and entries to all nationalities including Spanish residents.

To enter you need a license but those who do not have a cycling license you have to take the one-day-insurance provided by the organisation (10€).
