A GERMAN cyclist is fighting for their life after being mown down near Capdepera by a woman driving a Porsche Cayenne.

While the police are yet to release a full report into the incident it has been reported that the woman failed a roadside drugs test.

Two other cyclists from the town of Immenstadt are reported to have sustained serious injuries from the collision on the MA-15 with six others receiving minor injuries.

Mallorca has long been a favoured destination for cycling enthusiasts due to its favourable climate, well-maintained roads and spectacular scenery.
