  • Their website says 19th June, and pre-registering opens in November.
  • Guys - I just posted this on the other QBH thread.

    Because of massive demand last year the organisers have changed the process. There is now a pre-inscription planned for November and then a draw of names. As there were around 20,000 people looking to enter last time that would suggest you have less than a 50% chance of getting in.

    To help encourage more UK riders, the organisers have allocated guaranteed places to Train in Spain (www.traininspain.net). They are doing a 4-night package from the Wed-Sun. The arrival day is based on when Ryan Air fly into the nearest airport which is Zaragoza. From experience, there are no flights on the Thursday and the Friday flight is too late for the signing on which takes place on the Friday afternoon. Hence the 4-night package.

    John Fegan runs Train in Spain and he previously organised the trips for Ciclo Costa Blanca so he knows the ropes.

    For the record, the event is brilliant - I have done it three times, it is addictive!
  • Entries have to be confirmed by monday. andy www.madaboutthemountains.co.uk

  • So far over 13,500 riders have applied for a place - from this list the organisers are allocating 7,500 places. The remaining places are assigned to riders who qualify for guaranteed entry and some companies like Train in Spain (www.traininspain.net) that has places for UK riders.

    If you fail to get a place and still want to go contact John Fegan at the above website.
