Level group 3: (competition) cyclists who go for a top result in a cyclo or competition, for example top300/top100 in de la Marmotte.

The program is specifically aimed at cyclists who want to be in shape in the months of July/August for a cyclosportive, for example. It is a tough program where we will dot the i's and cross the t's. We will not make the final program until we know who exactly is participating, but it will roughly look like this:
We start Monday with an easy ride. The next two days, build up long endurance training with some technique exercises. Followed by a short recovery workout. The next three days we increase the pace slightly and we also do intervals and blocks and on the last day we participate in a local Cyclosportive with the enthusiasts. Please ask us for the exact program.
After the training sessions we arrange a lunch for the riders at our regular restaurant. Halfway through the week we organize an information evening about, among other things, training with a 'schedule' and there is plenty of room for tips & tricks for cycling techniques in the mountains.
The guides this week are Paul (our regular coach and owner of Campo Bicicleta), Huub (our Dutch connoisseur of the area) and Harry Kneppers (Paul's father) who will take our slowest cyclists with him this week.
