oops! you missed

¡Toros De Gravel!

Canyon Toros de Gravel Mallorca GP was a juicy sangria of two-wheeled challenge in a laid back atmosphere finished off with a rocking fiesta for some muy bueno Type 1 fun.

Sa Calobra, Kap Fomentor, and Puig Mejor were just some of the famous climbs we did not find along the route. Instead, we experienced a Mallorca previously known only to insiders: one of ancient roads built by the Romans, winding coastal trails to secluded beaches, wooded climbs and gripping descents. All in good company to the familiar sound of gravel crunching beneath.

Toros events are meant to be enjoyed. That’s why there is good food and entertainment. That’s why we kindly ask the meatheads to stay at home.

You might get lost. We might get loud. There could be explosions.

FAQS


 

What is gravel cycling?

Also known as “lame mountain biking” or “crappy road cycling”, gravel is a variable terrain discipline made infinitely more enjoyable with the proper tire width and frame geometry. Often of longish distance, a drop bar bicycle is therefore most suitable for comfort. Plus the rider behind you can see where the fuck she’s going.


Is Toros de Gravel a race?

No, amigo. Toros is dedicated to fun and adventure with like-minded people. Leave your aggro a casa and ride for fun like you did when you were a kid.


I want to come for a few days, can I ride gravel while I'm there?
