The long distance triathlon will return this 2020 to the island of Mallorca from the hand of Kumulus, with the dispute of the Mallorca 140.6
The test to be held on October 24 will have its nerve center in Playa del Muro and it will have 2 distances to choose
- The 140.6, (long distance): 3,8 km swimming, 180 km cycling and 42 km running
- The 140.6 Half, (medium distance): 1,9 km of swimming, 90 km of cycling and 21 km of running
Control of drafting in the cycling segment, one of the most important points for the organization
Everyone knows that, in long distance mass tests, Platoons are sometimes formed and the essence of triathlon is not 100% fulfilled which is to compete alone against oneself.
Therefore, in order to guarantee that all triathletes cover the 180 kilometers in unbeatable conditions and with the maximum security measures, the organization has promoted a series of measures to control Drafting in the segment
For this, it will have a high number of judges on the circuit and will limit the maximum participation to 1.500 triathletes, thereby guaranteeing that you will be able to experience the essence of triathlon.
In addition to own “marshals” coordinated with 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 will be able to compete with current triathlon garments, 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 historical of the Majorcan triathlon) will be the judge and he will advise us on who meets or does not meet the 'vintage' criteria ...
How to sign up?
To participate in the vintange test you must send a e-mail Explaining why you consider that you are a good candidate, what clothes you are going to wear (for example, a two-piece from the 90s, slip and shorts), and what bike you will bring to Playa de Muro to compete (must be prior to the year 2000)
Those who pass the 'cut' will receive a 25% discount on registration to participate in the Vintage category on October 24, 2020.
