Adopt a Pro Cycling Style Through Early Season Training
Every season Team Sky and other pro peloton cycling teams train in Mallorca. They can be seen riding mile after mile in the early winter months, getting ready for the next season and its challenges. They use the island as Mallorca is blessed with smooth roads, challenging climbs and descents, and it has great cycling features such as hairpin bends. Its climate in February and March is perfect for cycling and many cycling routes have little traffic.
The pro peloton teams realised a long time ago they could sharpen the skills of their riders by starting their training in February and early March. Their rides are designed to build fitness and base miles, blowing out the cobwebs of the late winter months. At the end of their pre-season training every rider is feeling enthused and ready for the next season. They are ready to compete and feel inspired. So can you.
The benefits of an early season cycling training camp are profound. You build the necessary base miles and improve your fitness level considerably. Your technique will advance as your cycling style becomes more professional. You will feel refreshed and invigorated, eager to take on challenges later in the season.
