As we are getting new bikes we had the opportunity to test drive the new Lapierre Xelius 600 Disc. This bike is used by the professional team Groupama FDJ. We wanted to test it at the best scenary we can have, the Sierra de Tramuntana, Puig Major, Soller.
Race car drivers Roldan Rodriguez and Santiago Arribas were here with us to test drive our Lapierre road bikes and keep going with their training. Even on holliday, this guys have to work a lot their physical attitudes to give the best on every race.
We decided to start from Palma climb “Coll de Soller” and head directly to Puig Major. After a stop in “Coll de sa Batalla” was time to go back direction Caimari. Mancor, Biniamar, Lloseta and Palma to finish the ride.
A total amount of 111 km. The day was sunny but not too hot. Wind from the back on the way back to Palma. The Lapierre Xelius 600 disc was very responsive and comfortable. 28 mm tires make very smooth the riding with a great grip on each bend. As always we recommend disc breakes for safe ride especially in the mountains!!!
