The Quebrantahuesos Triathlon takes place this weekend (August 4th/ 5th) in the picturesque village of Sallent de Gállego at the head of the Tena Valley on the Spanish/French boarder.
The area is close to the Pyrenees National Park and with recent upgrades to the road network, access from Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbai and San Sabastian is easy. With a fantatsic entry for the event we're certain that the Spanish sunshine and amazing scenery will provide an unmissable event.
