Cervélo TestTeam's women's squad is enjoying a training camp in Toscana, Italy. The riders are enjoying their three-week training block, before returning to Switzerland next month.
"It's a perfect place to train, in such a nice area with great weather conditions," said Kirsten Wild. "And it is also very good for the team spirit."
The women are training in preparation for next month's GP Brissago. The one day race will be held on March 7 in Switzerland.
"In Toscana we have a hard training camp, but also time to relax and have a cappuccino," Regina Bruins said. "It is a perfectly balanced training camp and I am glad to be here in this beautiful area and this nice environment with the team.
"It gives me a warm feeling and I am looking forward to the start of the new season," she said.
The squad's time in Toscana will come in handy later in the season when the team contests Giro della Toscana. After GP Brissago the squad will prepare for Trofeo Etrusca and the Giro d'Italia.
