Training in Mallorca. 12.11.

Each autumn professional teams gather before Christmas to train for the coming season. As the racing season has grown progressively longer the importance of the camps has increased as we are now required to be in race condition by early February, and for those racing in Australia, January. In mid December Team Sky met in Alcudia, Mallorca. Each day we rode for three to six hours at a steady speed with few intervals. To refuel and socialise, we stopped mid ride for a coffee and pastry. The rides usually ended with a heated sprint. Here are some photos from the camp.[nggallery id=40]

    Is that Cav in one of those shots? If so it looks like he’s been dropped :)

    Hi Simon. Yes, it is Cav. We were doing solo efforts on a climb. Cheers,
