Due to its climatological characteristics, the island of Mallorca is one of the best locations for cycling. With its mountains, steep slopes and extensive flatlands, it is perfect for cycling competitions and pre-season training. Many teams come to the island to improve their performance before the start of the competition calender. Palma also has one of the best velodromes in the world, Palma Arena, with an area of 90,000 m2 and capacity for 4500 spectators. Several competitions also take place on Mallorca every year, including the International Cycling Race and the Mallorca Challenge Cycling Race.
