It’s that time of year again with lots of teams on the Costa Blanca for their first training camp of the off season. Our man in Spain, Alastair Hamilton is on the spot and spent the day on the road with Team Astana. Here is how his day panned-out with the Kazakhs.
It's Best Of Week on PEZ, as we bid adieu to the big Holiday weekend and gear up for New Year's. For this Monday, we'll keep the Alastair Hamilton theme going and opt for his pick - the 2011 Quick-Step training camp - to go along nicely with yet another excellent EuroTrash. Read on!
Team training camps are a nice way to meet the riders and staff, there's not the same pressures as at a race, it's more laid back and like meeting up with old mates on their holidays...well it feels that way for me, but then I’ve not been doing seven hour rides every day! The yearly invite came from Quick-Step and as usual I was there...
The RadioShack team booked an early training camp this year in Calpe, Spain for the European riders to meet the new members of the team and for some light training. I received my summons from Mr. Buttler, so arrangements needed to be made for my day with the RadioShacks.
