Gallery: Tinkoff-Saxo end successful training camp in Gran Canaria

The 2015 Tinkoff-Saxo squad ended a successful two-week pre-season training camp that began on December 1 and concluded on December 13 on the Spanish island of Gran Canaria.

The 30 riders included returning Grand Tour contender Alberto Contador and newcomers Peter Sagan and Ivan Basso from Cannondale. The team spent 13 consecutive days at Anfi del Mar, a resort sponsor, training in the hills and mountains behind the hotel and along the seaside roads.

The purpose of the team camp was to provide riders with valuable training time on their bikes in warm weather conditions and to allow them ample time to get to know one another ahead of the 2015 season. The riders also had daily stretching and strengthening routines, and the new riders on the team had Specialized Geometry Fits on their bikes with Dr. Andy Pruitt.

Tinkoff-Saxo unveiled the team's new blue-toned camouflage training kit on the first day of camp. The official team kit will be revealed at a team presentation in Moscow on December 19.
