Etixx-QuickStep meet for first training camp of 2016 - Gallery

The Etixx-QuickStep team have met for their first training camp of the 2016 season. Showing off their new team kit, the riders, including new signings Marcel Kittel and Dan Martin, posed for photos.

The team is out in the Spanish town of Calpe, where they have held their January training camp for several years. It is the first gathering since the January 1 window, which allows all of the new riders to wear the team kit.

Team talisman Tom Boonen was in good form as he continues his recovery from a horrible crash in Abu Dhabi. Boonen remains confident that he will be able to ride the spring Classics later this year, but will have permanent hearing damage as a result of the crash.

During the training camp, the final preparations for the season ahead will be made along with training rides and core training sessions.

Cyclingnews will be heading to Calpe later this week to bring you interviews, pictures and video from the Etixx-QuickStep training camp.
