Despite not having the grandeur of the famous, historic climbs of the Grand Tours, Sa Calobra is no less important to professional and amateur cyclists alike. Existing on the beautiful island of Majorca the combination of a stunning climate, steady but testing gradients, smooth tarmac, hairpin bends and breathtaking scenery ensure that Sa Calobra is shoehorned within countless cyclists annual training plans, particularly during the spring.
The climb winds its way through the Tramuntara mountain range for around 10kms at an average gradient of 7% and on its route the rider encounters beautiful vistas and rugged mountain terrain. However, for a lot of cyclists the views aren’t foremost in their minds when they reach its base. This is because Sa Calobra has become something of a testing ground for cyclists who frequent its slopes during springtime training camps to hone and refine their form.
One key fitness assessment is a “full gas” effort from the bottom to the top of the climb with the times and performances recorded providing a vital insight into what forthcoming mesocycles of training should contain. Additional motivation is provided by Strava leaderboards, bragging rights and post ride beers in the sunshine with everything combining to definitively label Sa Calobra as one of cyclings “perfect” climbs.
My Sa Calobra Vintage t-shirt features an image that is designed and hand screen printed by myself here in my print workshop. The 3 colour print has a super soft, flexible feel and works perfectly in tandem with the 100% organic, ring-spun, combed cotton material. This t-shirt is completed with a fine ribbed collar, taped neck seam and full side seam construction resulting in superior wearer comfort and shape retention.
This t-shirt adheres strictly to the Fair Wear Foundation regulations that ensure fair and safe working conditions for the workers who manufacture the base t-shirt.
