The Gran Fondo Quebrantahuesos or the “Bone Breaker”, as this event is commonly called, is Spain’s most popular Cyclo-Sportive. We just call it QH! You will not be able to get an entry for this event as it sells out within hours each year but we have guaranteed entries available with a hotel in Jaca near the start and finish. The event takes place on Saturday 22 June 2024 in the Spanish and French Pyrenees.
The Gran Fondo Quabrantahuesos is Spain’s largest Cyclosportive and 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.
The race distance is 200km and there will be 3500 meters of vertical ascent on the menu. The route will take you over the following three main climbs:
Given the high demand to enter, there is a lottery and the event is vastly over-subscribed so is extremely difficult to get into so that’s where Sports Tours International come in. We provide travel packages with guaranteed entries, a 3 night stay at a 4* hotel near the start and finish, airport transfers from Zaragoza airport and the services of our experienced host and mechanic.
Number pick-up will take place on the 14th of June 2024 from 16:00 PM to 21:30 PM, and on the actual day of the event from 05:30 to 06:30 AM, just before the start. (These times are a guide from previous years, closer to the date of departure we will finalise this information and the location).
To take part in the 2024 Gran Fondo Quebrantahuesos you need a competitive or cyclosportive cycling license issued by a national federation addigned to the international Cycling Union (UCI) where the insurance covers Spain and France. Licenses from other sports (e.g Triathlon) is not permitted. Those who do not have a cycling license must purchase a one-day insurance license from the organisation direct (approx. €18). A medical certificate signed by your doctor within the last year from the event date is also required for this event.

Your entry will be for the Blue Box starting grid. We will provide further information closer to the date of departure on your starting time. Note that you have to have a Spanish license and a medical certificate to take part.
