WHO WOULD ENJOY THIS EXPERIENCE?

The experience is built for all riders who want to qualify for the UCI World Championship by finishing in the top 20% of their age group. We also welcome riders able to ride for 4-5 hours a day and just want to enjoy the tour region without racing.

The days leading up to the races we will do a course recon at a moderate pace and ensure proper recovery after each ride; no high intensity unless you want to!

We will ride as a group on the rolling terrain and as individuals or small groups on the climbs, so that everyone will enjoy the ride at his own pace. Our team of expert guides  will support each rider during the ride and make sure everyone finishes safe and happy.
