Click here for deets and to Reg!

The idea behind this trip is to bring together athletes to explore the quiet and mountainous regions of south central Spain. There, the Spanish sun and challenging mountainous terrain will reawaken, strengthen and warm you. Building fitness for fun and competition in 2018 is only one benefit, the unbelievable riding, amazing scenery, great food, and great people will be an experience you won’t easily forget. With much better weather than February and March in the states, and a dedicated 7 days to training, you’re sure to get stronger and faster and have fun in the process.

There are 2 trips going for 9 days each:

Camp 1 “MAX CAMP” : Friday 2/21/2020 – Sunday 2/29/20 (**Plan to fly from USA 2/20/20**)
Camp 2: Saturday 2/29/2020 – Sunday 3/8/2020 (**Plan to fly from USA 2/28/20**)

Please note camp 1 is longer by a day. Same price, you can thank us on the last day when your dying 🙂 

Sign up here for either camp. You can specify which camp when you register.

The cortijo (compound) where we’ll be staying is historic, charming, spacious, and allows for bedrooms away from the action but also a great deal of common space for people to hang out, watch sports, eat, drink and tell tales of the day’s adventures. We are located in a valley right in the Spanish Sierra Nevada mountain range and near a large town – Antequera – allowing for shopping, swimming at the swim center, and maybe even a night out or two if you can manage to not fall asleep from the days training. 

This is a training trip with a major focus on riding with various challenging climbs. Each day will feature rides between 4 and 6 hours long, always with various shorter possibilities as well and each day features a different route. Pace is base pace and mild tempo for the most part with athletes able to do their own training on the climbs as well as during the rides.

The days typically unfold like this:

8am coffee/tea
8:30 am yoga/core
9:30 breakfast
10:30 ride start
1pm lunch
4pm ride ends
5-7 recovery; relaxation; massage
7pm dinner
9pm movie/ hanging out

Each ride is fully supported with a follow car containing a tool kit, floor pump, any extra clothes you’d want to pack, snacks, and lunch!

We’ll also do 3 ‘special trips’:

1) A day trip to go climb the ‘Pico de Vuelta’, a 3500m climb. This climb is often used in the Vuelta de Espana.

2) A day trip to Granada to visit the Alhambra one of the seven wonders of the ancient world OR the Hammam bath complex or a different rewarding cultural event. 

3) An evening trip to a nearby village for dinner; to enjoy some local fare.

Cost for this trip is $1285 per session. This includes a double occupancy room, all meals, all transportation for ‘special trips’, daily follow car and pick-up/drop-off from Malaga airport. Airfare is not included in this price

Early reg: We are offering a sick deal of $200 off if you reg by 4/15/20! That’s a total of $1085 for the entire camp!
