The Costa Blanca is our perfect spot to finalize your winter preparation. With all year round sunshine, a large range of mountain passes, you will find a beautiful spot to take a selfie after every single turn. This is usually the last locations where the best Pro's come to finalize their preparation for the early season races like Paris-Nice or Milan-San Remo.
We're delighted for this special training camp edition to have Spokes, official coaching partner of the famous YouTube channel GCN, alongside for the week ! They will provide each individual with tips and tricks on your training, skills and overall knowledge about cycling preparation.
On top of that, their performance director and good friend of us, Pav Bryan, will honour us with his presence on and off the bike. It would be the perfect opportunity to have a chat with him before his next world record attempt of the Route 66, and listen to our stories about the first attempt of 2018.
Our training camp will be organised in the most professional way, with nothing to worry about except riding your bike. Each of our training ride will be backed up with our team car, carrying food, drink and extra clothing that we shouldn't need, because... well, it's Spain...
Finally, some words about Calpe, because of its location on the Mediterranean side of Spain, Calpe is a perfect place to spend a week in early February. With a temperature tending between 13°C an 17°C with a day long sunshine, you will enjoy a small coffee stop in front of a lovely port after a nice sunny ride on twisty roads.
No matter if you're looking for testing your actual shape or just taking cycling holiday to escape the cold winter, Calpe is the place to be !
