Registration opens for the Sea Otter Europe Cycle Tour, with two stages and stunning courses
The cycle tour at the Sea Otter Europe Costa Brava-Girona Bike Show is the first of the festival’s events to open registration. Starting today, anyone interested may sign up for an event that has become a stop on the Gran Fondo World Tour, the world’s leading cyclosportive circuit, and is due to take place on 9 and 10 June over two very different stages.
On Saturday, the Sport No Limit Travel International Cycle Tour by Ghost will offer riders a 165km course down the finest mountain roads in Les Guilleries and Montseny, with start and finish in Girona.
The day after, participants may choose from either an 80 or 130km route, both of which will take them towards the Costa Brava. All stages include ascents up legendary mountain passes and a timed section.
Special price and new features at the end of the race
Those who register on or before 10 April may take advantage of a special price of €35 per stage or €60 for anyone who wants to take part in both stages. Those interested may register on Ticketoci, where they may also purchase the event’s exclusive maillot, designed by Taymory. Participation is limited to 3,500 cyclists.
Something new this year is the large tent that will be set up outside the Fontajau Pavilion, Sea Otter Europe’s main venue, to serve meals to participants. This final refreshment station is included in the registration fee, as is a commemorative t-shirt.
In the second edition, the Sea Otter Europe Cycle Tour will exhibit its recently awarded international category and heightened global exposure and will showcase the excellent roads and stunning natural surroundings of the Costa Brava and Girona Pyrenees to cyclists from all over the world.
