Quebrantahuesos is Spain’s largest Gran Fondo and takes place on the third Saturday of June every year, in stunning Northern Spain deep in the brutal Pyrenees Mountains.
“Bone breaker” is the literal translation of Quebrantahuesos and is fitting name for a 205km event that includes three legendary Hors Categorie Tour de France climbs – Col de Somport, Marie Blanque and Portalet.
Getting in though is tough, like winning the lottery – really.
This year 14,284 cyclists entered the lottery to try and win a place in Spain’s hardest and most demanding gran fondo.
8000 got lucky and are now training for the June 20th event.
For those who did not win the lottery but want to cross this ride off their bucket list, a few entries are still available for a reasonable €250 via the QH Training Program. It includes entry, preferential starting position, personalized QH training plan and special en-route aid stations that allow quick refueling.
