This year’s mid-season Altitude Training Camp situated high up in the Estrela Mountains, Portugal was a great success.
Professional Riders, Monica and Chanel from Storey Racing spent ten days training on routes we specially created for them.
The routes not only covered the more famous climbs like Col’ de Zezere, known locally as ‘Glacier Climb’, an HC Category, 13km ascent, but also the lesser known and more remote climbs.
Climbs such as Col’ de Santo Antonio – another HC Category Climb which has an average gradient of 6% but also contains a number of leg burning double figure sections as it ascends 850m in only 13kms.
During their ten days training they were joined by two riders from the Army Cycling Team who were looking for a quiet place to train………..
