Gran Fondo Quebrantahuesos 2018

22nd to 24th June 2018 (Event date - June 23rd)

The Gran Fondo Quebrantahuesos or “la Quebranta” or the ‘Bone Breaker’, as this event is commonly called is Spain’s most popular Cyclo-Sportive.
You will not get an entry for this event as it sells out within hours each year but we have guaranteed entries available with our hotel in Jaca.
The event takes place on Saturday the 23rd of June 2018 in the Spanish and French Pyrenees. Spain’s largest Cyclo-Sportive starts and finishes in Sabiñánigo.

Hotel and guaranteed entry into the 2018 Gran Fondo Quebrantahuesos, Spain’s largest Cyclosportive is now available with Sports Tours International. The best Cyclosportive that you have never heard of. A must-do event!

As this event passes through spectacular protected areas of natural beauty and for the participant’s safety, the number of cyclists is limited to a relatively small field. For this reason and given the high demand to enter, there is a lottery and the event is vastly over-subscribed so is extremely difficult to get into. That’s where we come in!

Gran Fondo Quebrantahuesos event details:
The race distance is 205km and there will be 3500 meters of vertical ascent on the menu. You can find the route map here.

The route will take you over the following three main climbs:

  • Col du Somport (1604m)
  • Col du Marie Blanque (1035m)
  • Col du Portalet (1795m)

To take part in the 2018 Gran Fondo Quebrantahuesos you need a Spanish day license and a medical certificate signed by your doctor within the last year from the event date.
