Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) has completed another sporting event to raise money for charity – this time, an ultra-endurance cycle event around the mountains of Mallorca.
Richard Castle-Smith, Head of Fire Suppression at Trinity Fire & Security Systems – acquired by PTSG in January 2019 – showed tremendous mettle by taking part in the 312km race, climbing 16,500 feet across the mountains in a time that far exceeded his expectations. That’s a distance and an ascent that would daunt most motorists, let alone cyclists, but Richard completed the event and raised over £4,500 for Brain Tumour Research.
Ultra-distance cycling is a growing trend among cyclists as more and more amateurs want to emulate the professionals by cycling further and harder than ever. The Mallorca 312 sportive allows entrants to experience everything that is great about cycling on the island in a closed-roads, sunrise-to-sunset ride. Of the 8,000 participants, only 1,850 enrolled for the longest course completed by Richard.
The Mallorca 312 comes on the back of the Mallory 100 Plop Enduro, which was completed by Mark Brackenbury, Group SHE Advisor, on 27th April. The PTSG is encouraged to participate in a great many more charity events, both sporting and otherwise.
