Team NetApp escaped wet northern Europe and sought the sun of Mallorca as it plans its first assault on a Grand Tour. The German Professional Continental team held its first training camp of 2012 on the Spanish island.

The team was given a wild card invitation to the Giro d'Italia this year, and young Czech rider Leo König is expected to lead the team in Italy.  He was amongst those riders hitting the mountains in preparation for a climber's Giro.

Nearly half of the team is new this year, eight of the 17 riders. The camp was also a chance for the newcomers to get to know their new teammates and start the process of becoming a team that works well together.
