The long distance triathlon will return this 2020 to the island of Mallorca by the hand of Kumulus, with the dispute of Mallorca 140.6
The test to be held on October 24 will have its nerve center in Playa del Muro and will consist of 2 distances to choose
- The 140.6, (long distance): 3,8 km of swimming, 180 km of cycling and 42 km of running
- The 140.6 Half, (medium distance): 1,9 km of swimming, 90 km of cycling and 21 km of running
The control of drafting in the cycling segment, one of the most important points for the organization
Everyone knows that, in long distance mass tests, squads are sometimes formed and the essence of triathlon is not 100% fulfilled which is to compete alone against oneself.
Therefore, in order to ensure that all triathletes cover 180 kilometers in unbeatable conditions and with maximum security measures, the organization has promoted a series of measures to control Drafting in the segment
To do this, it will have a high number of judges in the circuit and limit the maximum participation to 1.500 triathletes, which guarantees that the essence of triathlon can be lived.
In addition to own marshals coordinated with the FETRIB they will also boost the distance of 20m instead of 12m to avoid drafting
For the most classic, a Vintange test
In addition to the two competitions in which triathletes may compete with current triathlon apparel, the organization winks at the "classics" so that 100 triathletes (50 in the half and 50 in the full) can return to the essence of the 80-90.
Jaume Vicens (a Majorcan triathlon record) will be the judge and he will advise us on who meets the 'vintage' criteria or not ...
How to sign up?
