Desafío La Titánica – cycling competition

The Free Motion Desafío La Titánica cycling competition is on Saturday, 16 March 2024. 

FREE MOTION Desafío La Titánica is consolidated in this 19th edition as a world-class event endorsed by the UCI seal. A major challenge that will once again test the physical and mental capacity of all participants. A route with extremely tough sections that left more than 30 cyclists on the road last year in an epic day with a route full of tight curves, never-ending ramps, and dreamlike landscapes.

starting at 8:00 a.m. with start and finish in Playa de Mogán. Free Motion Desafío La Titánica is said to be the toughest cycling event on the islands and again challenging the bravest cyclists for yet another year.

“Remember that this will mean there will be road closures during the timed section and there will be hundreds of cyclists on the road”
