M&A Roadrace

Networking on the road bike and sharing sporting passion – Welcome to the M&A Roadrace Community!

Since 2009 – The M&A Roadrace is a networking cycling event that combines professional aspects of M&A and private equity with leisure and sports in an extraordinary way. Over three days Deloitte partners and enthusiastic clients – divided into different performance groups – explore the most beautiful routes of Mallorca...

The M&A Roadrace has taken place once a year on Mallorca since 2009. Meanwhile, our community consists of more than 100 cycling enthusiastic participants from the M&A and private equity industry.

The extraordinary networking events are organized with the former professional sprinter Marcel Wüst accompanied with other professional bike guides and popular riders of the racing bike scene like André Greipel, Hanka Kupfernagel, Jens Voigt, Rolf Aldag, Bernhard Eisel – to name just a few.

Stay in the Game! If not live, then at least in color...

Staying true to our motto, the M&A Roadrace 2020 was unceremoniously transformed into a successful virtual M&A Roadrace.

Making contacts, discussing deals and – of course – lots of sports are on the agenda. 

Join us every month at our virtual M&A Roadrace for a joint "ride" via Zoom and Zwift. Guided by Marcel Wüst with interesting talks and get an exclusive opportunity to connect with fellow riders.
