The Liquigas cycling team is offering a camp for kids aged seven to twelve. The focus of the six-day camp is on teaching the kids more about the sport and bicycling in general. The course is limited to 25 children and is taught by professional coaches, staff and professional riders from the ProTour team.
In each of the four sessions that are currently scheduled one of the team's top riders will attend. The kids in the first wave that is already under way got to meet with Danilo Di Luca. For the other sessions, Filippo Pozzato, Franco Pellizotti and Murilo Fischer will attend the respective camps to be held in July, August and September.
Liquigas's goal with the camp is to offer the ability to learn about the exciting world of cycling in a secure environment. The one-week long "vacation" is held near Treviso.
Different disciplines of cycling (road, mountain, cyclo-cross and track) will be explored. Staff includes mechanics, doctors, coaches and entertainers who will make sure the kids don't get bored after the day in the saddle is over.
