How should I train for Quebrantahuesos?
Talking about La Quebrantahuesos is talking about a cycle touring event of huge words. It is a long-distance Gran Fondo, and the climbs, perhaps not particularly steep but very long, can make some of the four ascents a bit of a drag for many. And as there are no ascents without descents, you should be well prepared for them, especially if you have to face some adverse weather conditions called rain, which has been present in previous years and that forces you to descend with certain caution.
