Vincent Bernard-Lafoucrière, Director of the Cabinet of the Prefect of Pyrénées-Atlantiques, gave a welcome address on behalf of the French authorities. Josy Pouyeto, National Deputy from Pau, then highlighted the cross-border collaboration between the two countries and neighbouring regions in favour of sport.
In its 33rd edition, Quebrantahuesos also has the support of its inseparable travelling companion, Ibercaja. An uninterrupted partner from the very first day, its deputy to Ibercaja’s Marketing Director, Fernando Arcega, has highlighted the importance of the commitment and the strength of the alliance. “At Ibercaja we are very proud to have contributed to bringing this sporting event to the highest level in all areas. The excellence in its organisation is rewarded, year after year, with a full house of lovers of this demanding sport and of the Pyrenees. For us, our historical involvement in this cyclotourism event is a response to our commitment to people, to their well-being, and also to this exceptional territory, whose localities and inhabitants deserve special recognition for the great welcome they give to this QH event, without which it would not be possible to organise it”.
Pascal Trouilh, Sponsorship Governance at TotalEnergies and responsible for the partnership between TTEE and Section Paloise Rugby, highlighted TotalEnergies’ involvement in cycling and the promotion of the values of sport, emphasising its partnership with the multidisciplinary entity Paloise Rugby. For Trouilh, the magnificent natural scenery of the march is, without a doubt, a hallmark of the Quebrantahuesos.
For his part, José Carlos Campo, sub-delegate of the Government in Huesca, highlighted the fruitful collaboration between the Spanish government and the French prefecture: “This is a first-class sporting and social event and an opportunity to strengthen the links between France and Spain through the Pyrenees”.
María Jesús Gimeno, Managing Director of Tourism of Aragón, Government of Aragón, considers that the Quebrantahuesos bike ride is more than just a sporting event and has highlighted the socio-economic impact, quantified at 18 million euros. “These are more than enough arguments for the Government of Aragon to collaborate with all possible means”.
The vice-president of Club Ciclista Edelweiss, Quique Ascaso, is delighted to be back in Pau and has highlighted not only the celebration of the 33rd edition, but also his desire to continue working to celebrate many more editions of a successful model of cross-border collaboration.
Finally, Xavier Bartrolí, president of Octagon Esedos, co-organiser of the event, thanked all the parties involved in such a special event: “La Quebrantahuesos is originally from Aragon, but it is also from France; without the identity of the French cycling territory and the collaboration between both regions, the la Quebrantahuesos would not be what it is”.
For those who have not been successful, the organisation offers Premium and Training Pro Packs, which offer a guaranteed place in the race and a specific training plan. They can also obtain places through our partner travel agencies or by signing up for the Pirineos No Limits challenge, which, when completed, also guarantees a place in the 2025 Quebrantahuesos.
