Your winter training camp in Spain is the perfect way to get into shape for the cycling season. Throughout the winter and spring in Andalucia, road traffic is minimal; the weather is bright and warm, with average daily temperatures between 16 and 25 degrees……just perfect for riding! Andalucia is the perfect destination to train for the Etape du Tour, cyclo-sportives and, come to think of it, any other cycling event. This area is frequently visited by the Vuelta de Andalucia and Vuelta de España, so if it’s good enough for the Pro’s then it’s good enough for us.

Pumping up the steep grade of the numerous climbs which include several Vuelta a Espana and Vuelta a Andalucia cols, your legs burn and your heart pounds, however, you keep the wheels turning to the summit to become the King or Queen of the mountains.

This is why you are here – to train, to loose a few unwanted pounds that you have gained over the winter months and to prepare yourself for the coming season. So, get off your turbo trainers, dust off the bikes, head for the Andalucian winter sun and get some real miles into your legs and some sunshine upon your face. This is what pre-season training is all about.

During the summer months Andalucia makes a great place to train for those warmer weather events such as Ironman Kona. You’d be able to train in similar conditions to those that you would expect on ‘RaceDay’ & see how your body copes with the warmer climate/race conditions. This is a valuable learning tool for you during your preperation in particularly with respect to the hydration and nutrition for a warm weather event.

For the tri-athletes amongst us, we have decided to concentrate on the cycling aspect of Triathlons, as this is the longest section of any triathlon event. We organise an open water swimming session in the nearby lake at Zahara during the week (we reccomend that you bring a wetsuit for this), alternatively, we can go to the 25 metre indoor swimming pool in Ronda. There are several running routes around Montecorto.

However, in 2019 we are running 2 Fully Coached Triathlon Training Camps with run and swim coaching/analysis and a mini triathlon at the end of the week! Our coaches are Karen Parnell, BTF and IRONMAN certified coach and Jess Petersson, former professional IRONMAN athlete and Olympian. During the week there will also be strength and conditioning sessions, Q&A evening with Jess, advice on training plans and basic bike mechanics course.
