Upcoming Races

The next racing we'll report on will be the four competitions that make up the Challenge Illes Balears. These are four races that used to have an overall winner, but now are run independently. The first race is the Trofeo Santanyí, held on January 29. Then, on February 1 we'll have three races. The first will be the last of the Illes Balears competition along with the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race (1.1) and the first race of the French season, The Grand Prix Cycliste la Marseillaise. It will be a busy day.
