winding roads set in the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range to the north west of the
island. Designed by engineer Antonio Parietti to avoid building any tunnels, it is a single

The exclusive training site for the cyclists in this episode is actually the Parc de la Mar, the
extensive forecourt in front of Palma’s stunning cathedral.
