The flight is at 8h05. you should arrive there around 6h30 at the latest. People living around Brussels can travel together, can some of you volunteer to drive and meet at an easy accessible point in Brussels? We will centralize your proposals.

Accomodation in Palma:
It has not been easy to find a hostel/hotel/ B&B with anough availability for that period and at a reasonable price.
The hostals we found are quit expensive and don't have a kitchen, breakfast to be taken in a restaurant in the neighbourhood.
The difference in price with the hotels just outside town is small.
We have selected therefore hotel price per person per night 52,50€ breakfast included.
We will sleep in urban and in superior rooms for that price. All rooms will be twin bedded except for Luis and Rudy who will be travelling/sleeping with partner. The hotel is at 1,5km from the race start and is situated in a calm area of Palma.
Don't hesitate to contact us in case of any further inquiries.

Is compulsary. We will communicate later on how to proceed on this.
