Roughly two-thirds of the new Team High Road will be participating in an unofficial training camp on the island of Mallorca from December 1 to 5. Team spokesman Stefan Wagner told Cyclingnews that 18 riders will be attending the voluntary training, some staying longer or arriving earlier. Among those attending are Michael Rogers and Bernhard Eisel.
Eisel noted that the training camp will allow the riders to escape not only the European winter weather, but also the problems surrounding the team lately. "I'm really looking forward to training in the warmth of southern Europe. And to put the last few turbulent days behind us," he said on his website, eisel.com.
