Gazprom-RusVelo training camp in Calpe

Gazprom-RusVelo completes its preparation in Calpe, Spain and is approaching the debut of this 2016 season in Mallorca Challenge, January 28th.

For the first time the cyclists of the Russian team took to the streets with the colors of the new sponsor.

The phase of athletic training provided an opportunity to the team to train in ideal weather conditions, under the careful supervision of sporting directors Sergey Klimov and Aliaksandr Kuchinski, as well as medical staff and the team nutritionist. «Stage in Calpe allowed us to train in an environment different from the usual, taking advantage of sun and good weather conditions», Sergey Klimov says.

«This training camp was very important for us», continues Sergey Klimov. «We tried to find the best condition for the season and for the first races. We concluded the first part of the preparation, exploiting the work done in December in Tuscany and looking for the right condition after holidays. Now it begins the second phase of the preparation, in two separate groups of sprinters and climbers. All this will allow us to get closer well to first official engagements. We are now focused on races, we want to find immediately best results».

At the training camp of Calpe are present almost all cyclists, with the exception of those who will be involved in the World Cup on track in Hong Kong. All cyclists will be together in Mallorca, before season’s debut on the road.
