Xacobeo Galicia schedules training camp

The Spanish Xacobeo Galicia cycling team will hold its team training camp from January 12 to 22 in the Baixo Miño region of Spain.This is the second consecutive year the squad has trained in the Baixo Miño region and the team will again be based in the village of A Guarda.

The terrain and weather are very appealing to manager-director Alvaro Pino. "It's quiet with no excessive traffic on the roads at this time of year. There are long stretches of flat terrain but the mountains are also very close. The weather and temperatures will also be much milder than we found on the Camino de Santiago."

The Xacobeo Galicia team held their first training ride of the year on Friday, consisting of a 120 km ride in the mountains. In the coming week team members will carry out individualized training programs and will not meet again until January 12 for the training camp.
