Swimming

Experience The Thrill Of Open Water Swimming….

Swimming in Majorca is a great experience with clear turquoise waters, no wonder all the locals spend their weekends at the beach! At Challenge Tri Camp we know all the best places depending on the time of the year, temperature of the sea and, of course, whether you’re looking to to train or relax.

We run wetsuit and non-wetsuit sessions to give you the opportunity to practice and perform transition training.

The closest beach is 200m away and we coach our open water sessions with one coach in the water and the other on dry land. With the swims taking place in ‘no water craft’ areas it is safe and the majority of the time in shallow water. The Ironman and half Ironman swim courses are on our doorstep as well.

 

Pool Technique and Speed Improvement….

With an onsite 25m heated lane pool we can swim anytime, any distance! Video swim analysis is performed at the first swim session with feedback following shortly afterwards to allow time in the week to practice the tips and recommendations. We coach 3-4 swim sessions a week with 2 coaches on pool side to ensure the level of feedback is high. It is possible to swim everyday with swim sets provided if required.

The plan is to leave Challenge Tri Camp with lots to practice in the water and ready for those new swim challenges. 

Cycling

The best roads in the world….

Every year 90,000 cyclists come to Mallorca for the best routes in Europe, with fantastic road quality and breath-taking views.

We run guided rides each day with coaches at the front and back who are in radio contact with each other to ensure the safety of the group. We do an assessment ride on the first day so we can split the group (if needed) to ensure everyone gets the maximum out of the week. We offer alternative routes for those who want shorter or longer rides with meeting points that tend to involve a quick café stop!

It is possible to ride or rest each day it’s entirely a personal choice, it is possible to do solo rides (uncoached) and we can assist with maps and recommended routes.

Flat, Hilly, Coastal, Scenic….

The coaches give a talk regarding bike safety, handling, useful tips and ascending and descending skills before the first bike ride and will assist with these skills on the rides throughout the week. We practise riding in groups and never leave anyone behind. We have a NO DROP POLICY which means you will never be left to find your own way home.

At Challenge Tri Camp we have our favourite cycle routes and mileage varies depending on the training week from a 40km flat tour around the local farmers fields and towns to an undulating trip to the Formentor Lighthouse or a tough 160km coastal route with a few inland mountains thrown in for good measure! 

One of the most notorious rides in Majorca has to be Sa Calobra which involves a 10km hairpin decent down to a beautiful village and after a quick stop for a drink at the bottom, its back up! Majorca is made for cycling and we aim to show all aspects.
