With racing underway in Australia and South America, it’s only a matter of days before the 2010 calendar clicks into gear in Europe.
The first official races on the European continent will be the Giro di Regio Calabria in Italy on Jan. 30 and the GP de Ouverture La Marsellaise on Jan. 31 in France.
Spain’s 2010 racing calendar begins with the traditional five-day kickoff at the Mallorca Challenge, Feb. 7-11.
Some big stars are lining up for the event, including the Schleck brothers (Saxo Bank), Alejandro Valverde (Caisse d’Epargne), Óscar Freire (Rabobank), Robbie McEwen (Katusha), Andre Greipel (HTC-Columbia) and Slyvain Chavanel (Quick Step).
The race is a favorite among the top pros because of the mild weather and excellent training roads on Spain’s Mallorca island.
The races are a series of individual, one-day events, so riders can start as many as they want during the week. There’s also an unofficial classification for riders who partake in all five stages.
