We offer both self guided and luxury coached training camps year round and coached group camps on specific dates from Hotel Mas Pelegri our 3* hotel.
Hotel Mas Pelegri 3* is based in the perfect area for cycling training with over 100 cycling routes of different length and difficulty, including the pro climbs of Rocacorba and El Mont just 10km from the Hotel door, Valter 2000 in the Pyrenees only 50 miles away and the Med just 30 miles away. So you have fantastic routes in every direction including the Volcanic national park, the foothills and high Pyrenees, the Cap de Creus, the Gavarres, the Med and the high plateaus of the Collascabra.
On site we have an indoor bike room with stand, track pumps and tools and Garmins and SwiftCarbon bikes with ultegra components for rent. We also have a sauna, 25 metre pool, free WIFI, laundry room and gym with free weights, swiss balls, foam rollers and turbos.
Our team includes a bike set up guru, bike mechanic, cycling coaches, neurophysiologist, children's coaches, core strength & conditioning coach, and sports injury & massage therapist.
We also look after professional teams, clubs, company retreats and long stay pro athletes. Please see this cool video from the Endura team that shows them training at Mas Pelegri in January 2011. Everyone is welcome from beginners to pros to everyone in between. Everything is customised to fit your requirements. At certain times of year, there is the option to compete in local cycling events or watch watch the major tours, for example the Volta de Catalunya in March, the Tour de France in July and the Vuelta d'Espana in September.
You can book self guided and luxury training camps at any time subject to availability and we customise the camp to fit your requirements. You can choose one on one athlete to coach ratio, or two on one, depending on your group size. Everything can be customised to your requirements. For luxury camps everything is included in your stay. You never need to reach for your wallet, because there are no hidden costs... at all. Once you arrive at Girona or Barcelona airport you will be completely taken care of, from training or guiding with an expert coach, to sumptuous cuisine, to complete sports nutrition while training, to massages, to trips to places of historic, artistic and natural interest. Everything is customized to your requirements. We feel it is important for everyone to train at their correct level to get the most out of their training camp. An example plan for the week is here, but everything can be customised to your requirements.
We also have guests who book a self guided stay but add in a few hours or days of coaching as they require them.
Another option if you prefer a group experience at a cheaper rate is our group training camps, where we keep the ratio of coach to athlete at a a maximum of one coach per 4 athletes. These are all inclusive camps at 995 euros per week based on 2 people sharing a room.
Bike training sessions will cover cornering, descending, ascending, efficient peddling and maintaining momentum. Nutrition and hydration while racing and training is also covered. We also include neurophysiology sessions. You may ask what are the extra sessions the pros do to improve their performance? One is REST and the others are Neurophysiology training sessions and bike set up. What do we mean by neurophysiology? In endurance sports efficiency and weight are the key elements to a great performance. This means you must perfect your technique and your aerodynamics, when cycling, so you go as fast as possible with less effort. Becoming faster, stronger and more efficient does not necessarily mean you need to build muscle. The main thing is to make the muscle as effective and efficient as possible. Your central nervous system controls how you coordinate a particular movement. So by strengthening these pathways your movements will become more efficient. The exercises are simple but effective and we have seen huge gains even in athletes at the top of their profession. We want you to reach your potential.
