Then it's onto the bikes for three trips to Cala d'Hort which will clock up another 120 kilometres (watch out motorists – the road from Ibiza to Cala d'Hort is completely closed to traffic) and finally there's a road race consisting of four laps round Ibiza town taking in a jaunt up to the Cathedral x 4 to add another 30 kilometres to the total circuit.

There are detailed maps of the race on the official website for those who want to watch it or avoid it. It's scheduled to finish about 14.00 in Ibiza town, so good luck to all the competitors.
