Majorca Training Camp
Majorca Training Camp
Pre-season training camp professionally guided and supported in the mountains of Northern Majorca. 730km
GPM10 have again teamed up with CycleFit to provide two very special weeks of quality training with professional support.
Northern Majorca's combination of mountains, flat lands, great roads and mild spring weather make it a popular destination for many pro teams for pre season training. Our camp provides a stress free environment to get some quality miles into your legs with full support on the road with our team car and riders.
The 2009 ride schedule is focused more in the mountains and will include a new route over the Coll de Puig Major from Lluc and out onto the coastal road via Deia.
Cyclefit will be on hand providing postural and pedaling analysis and advice on equipment, nutrition and training and will also be running evening seminars covering preparation for key events (Etape du Tour), on the road repairs - bike maintenance and choosing the best line for descending.
Climbing and descending clinics with on the road video analysis and feedback will be provided throughout the week.
