January 18th – 24th 2019
Come and join us for a week of Mountain biking under the sun. The event is placed the week before our very popular, 4 Stage MTB Race and you will cover most of the routes of the race during this training camp. Even if you are not taking part in the race, this week could be something for you.
Lanzarote is the ideal location to train for such an adventurous and extreme event with similar road and track conditions and the same warm and sunny climate. This camp is for all experienced mountain bike riders with a passion for stage racing (you should be able to ride 4-5 hours on the mountain bike daily).
The routes will vary both in length and difficulty, taking you to the far south, through the fascinating Fire Mountains and up to the north with the view over the nearby island La Graciosa. The dramatic landscape of the island and the wind will challenge you on the lava fields, gravel and sandy roads, single tracks, jeep tracks and rocky descents. The daily rides will be between 3 and 6 hours, organized in different group levels. We will offer you plenty of challenges, guidance and many unforgettable off road experiences.
