Rein Coertjens, who was the "winner" of the 312. | Jaume Cabrer / Mallorca 312
The Mallorca 312 cycle challenge has caused a great deal of frustration in recent years. The event embraces numerous municipalities - thirty this year - and requires road closures. The organisers have sought to improve the situation. There was plenty of advance warning, and the Guardia Civil say that yesterday's event provoked fewer traffic problems than previously.
