The Team CSC riders are enjoying their stay in Mallorca as part of the Danish ProTour team's training camp. They've managed to get in lots of riding time, and sports director Kim Andersen is very satisfied with the outcome.
"Up until now it's been perfect really. The weather's been great so we've trained a great deal more than I'd thought possible. They're bloody fast out there too," noted Andersen.
"There's not that much wind and during the last couple of days the sun's been shining from a clear sky. The temperature's been around 14 to 16 degrees, I think, so we couldn't have asked for better conditions. And we've managed to avoid crashes as well even though one of the guys went down with the flu – but that's a minor detail. Marcus Ljungqvist has arrived and is looking good on top of his flu," continued Andersen.
"The first camp of the year is always good and everyone's been in a brilliant mood. They're pressuring each other in a good way and that'll hopefully lead to some great results later on in the season," concluded Andersen.
