Why do the pros pick Girona? - Video

Girona, Spain – a city of about 100,00 people in the north-east corner of Catalonia – has become a haven for pro cyclists from around the globe. Quick access to training roads, along with high temperatures that range from 13°C in winter to 30°C in summer, make it an ideal place for cycling.

The laid-back Spanish atmosphere and Girona's size are also conducive for a low-stress lifestyle that allows a focus on the job, which is why some teams like Israel Start-Up Nation have required riders to live there.

In the video above, our friends at inCycle take a look at Girona and why it's such a big draw for the pros.
