The Eifel region and the Balearic islands are a perfect match. This year, the cooperation of Philipps Bike Team (PBT), training camp provider on Mallorca, and the organizers of Rad am Ring has shown that. The 2019 RaR week on Mallorca was a success, many guides and also 70 participants from PBT started at Rad am Ring … and both families moved closer and closer together. We discovered many similarities – and we liked each other anyway. If something works so well, it makes you want more: That’s why we will expand the cooperation in 2020 – not only, but also, in the context of the RaR week on Mallorca. Find out what this week will look like here.
Rad am Ring goes Mallorca
Cooperation with Philipps Bike Team on growth course
Rad am Ring week Mallorca
From March 28 to April 4 offers in Santa Ponsa, Alcudia and Playa de Palma
Training camp in Santa Ponsa, Meet & Greet in Alcudia and discounts at all five rental stations of Philipps Bike Team, including the two at Playa de Palma: The 2020 Rad am Ring week on Mallorca has three treats ready for all cyclists.
Trainings-Camp Santa Ponsa
Santa Ponsa, located in the southwest of Mallorca, offers optimal conditions to prepare for Rad am Ring. The day tours around the Hotel Punta del Mar do not only lead through wonderful, partly very remote landscapes, but there is also some topography for “altitude training”. The core of the Rad am Ring week is the regular PBT weekly program, which has been tried and tested for years – we made some interesting modifications though:
Monday evening: First-hand Rad am Ring facts
The organization team around Rad am Ring boss Hanns-Martin Fraas will give some insights and is available for special questions. Experts will talk about the physical challenge of Rad am Ring, the right preparation and what you should consider when making your bike Ring-ready. Finally, there will be a brief introduction to night cycling, including the distribution of our partner’s special lights.
Tuesday: Night ride and more
In the morning, the groups of various levels will go on a somewhat shorter tour similar to the topography of the Nürburgring, the later afternoon is free and after dinner, the night training starts on a small circuit outside Santa Ponsa’s gates. The special equipment of our lighting partner turns the night into day and an atmospheric change- and catering zone will also be there.
Trainings-Camp Santa Ponsa
Wednesday: The rest(less) day
Wednesday is traditionally rest day. We won’t change this. Optionally, however, we offer a one-and-a-half-hour workshop in the morning on the subject of “bike fitting” and an afternoon workshop of the same length on the subject of “training planning”.
Rotor power meter and more
Our partner Rotor will be on site during the RaR week. Power meters can not only be tested, but the rotor team will also on site for some advice and to talk shop. At PBT partner SQlab, you can also have your seat cusps measured so that your buttocks rest optimally on the saddle in the future.
The amateur Rad am Ring racing team around our speaker and IT specialist Holger Kremers also pedals around Santa Ponsa during the week. Meeting them will therefore not be coincidental, but completely deliberate. If you have any spontaneous questions about the event at the Nürburgring, you can also ask your tour guide, almost all of them are Ring connoisseurs and RaR fans. See? The week offers a lot of Rad am Ring competence and -emotion on Mallorca!
Meet & Greet April 1, Alcudia
Alcudia is a Mecca for all cyclists on Mallorca. Traditionally, everyone who indulges in his or her hobby on the Balearic island ends up there. Philipps Bike Team operates two rental stations in Alcudia and offers organized cycling experiences from there as well as from Santa Ponsa (Link). Since 2019, PBT also has a bike station in the Hotel Playa Esperanza on Playa del Muro. There are 300 road bikes, 20 e-bikes and 10 tour guides available. For all Mallorca riders who would like to get to know Philipps Bike Team and Rad am Ring on site, we will organize a small Meet & Greet program on Wednesday, April 1 (no joke!) with the Rad am Ring Team and partners.
Rad am Ring participants will get money back on Mallorca!
All participants of Rad am Ring who prepare for the season on Mallorca in the week from March28 to April 4 will get refunded 10 percent of their Rad am Ring fee on site at PBT’s. Simply send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with a registration confirmation from Rad am Ring and select the planned rental station. We’ll inform PBT about the discount height, which is then taken into account and/or paid out locally. But keep in mind: The registration for Rad am Ring must be completed for this special offer by March 21, 2020 and Rad am Ring must have received the e-mail (see above). The 10 percent refund always refers to the price per capita. If a team of 4 wants to rent 4 bikes, this is possible. However, the names must already be registered with Rad am Ring and a photo ID must be presented on site.
