Power Training Camp
Gran Canaria, Spain
Our Gran Canaria Training Camp is an opportunity for a week to train like the Pro's. Including popular epic Gran Canaria climbs, with the added element of sprint competitions on the flatter roads along the coast.
The camp is normally held early in the new year, allowing you to soaking up some winter sun with temperatures averaging 21ºc. Small group number allows for personal on road coaching, regardless of your ability, on the climbs. We regroup at the top of each major climb, usually at a lunchtime cafe stop.
It is usually based in Maspalomas in a hotel with Breakfast and dinner included. Post ride; it is possible to review you power data with coach. Rest day is usually in the middle of the week and that day is on your own time. After an optional short recovery ride; relax or explore Maspalomas or the rest of the Island.
Debbie and I would love to see you there, when we return to Gran Canaria in early 2022. Stay tuned for updates!
