Kodak Gallery-Sierra Nevada completes high desert camp

The Kodak Gallery Pro Cycling Team Presented by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. completed its winter 2007 training camp in California's high desert. The team trained for the week at elevation and was based out of Xantusia, a training facility operated by time trial positioning guru Dan Empfield and tri-sports legend Mark Montgomery.

Surrounded by snow capped peaks, riders soaked up the desert sun on rides varying from long stretches of wind blown flats to epic climbs through Angeles National Forest. Climbing specialist Ben Raby appreciated the sometimes cold and blustery conditions, "I love the windy days – they toughen us up. This has been an excellent camp."
