Overview

We return to the Costa Blanca for our first training camp of the year. With two guides, a support vehicle, carefully planned rides and comfortable accommodation, this’ll be one of the best few days riding your bike. From Altea we can get straight into the hills and being on the coastal region, all rides finish with a downhill! Flat roads to Benidorm lend themselves nicely to warming up before and cooling down after days spent in the saddle.

The Riding

The Valencia region stands out as being the top choice of professional teams’ training camps; ex-world champion Michal Kwiatkowski has a house in the area. The roads are well-maintained and a lack of traffic and harsh winters means potholes and road defects are far and wide between. With many famous climbs that have featured in the Veulta and other professional races, segments such as the Col de Tudons and the Cumbre del Sol have been used as summit finishes, most recently in stage 9 of the 2017 Tour of Spain. GCN featured the Col de Rates in the Top 10 Most Famous Spanish Climbs video.

Team KTM UK have been doing their pre-season training in the area and have created these videos of a few of the local climbs:

The Accommodation

Hotel Cap Negret ****

Our chosen hotel is situated to the north of the small resort town of L’Albir which is close to the sea and a short 45-minute transfer from Alicante Airport. It has spacious twin en-suite rooms, with a bountiful hot and cold buffet spread put on for breakfast and dinner. The hotel also has a swimming pool and is literally on the seafront, so ideal for triathletes or for riders wanting to bring their partners for a non-riding holiday, or simply wanting a post-ride walk or dip.

The standard trip package is based on a Standard Twin bed en-suite with balcony. There is secure bike storage and bike-washing equipment. Single occupancy and upgraded packages are available, just contact us for prices.

With two guides and a fully equipped van on every ride, you have only to ride and leave the route-planning, pace-setting, cafe-stop-finding and bike-fixing to us.
