The Bahrain-Merida team have wrapped up their final training camp of the year in Hvar, Croatia and the team management expressed their satisfaction with the organisation of the camp and the training conditions.
“During our stay on Hvar, the riders executed 100 % of the planned activities,” confirmed Vladimir Miholjević, Directeur Sportif and coordinator of the training camp.
“The training plan constituted of 45 hours training on bikes, morning trainings with activation of all muscle groups, and afternoon strength trainings and stretching. We also used this occasion for regular meetings of all organisational groups and for our nutritionist, Laura Martinelli, to give our riders some extra knowledge about this important part of professional cycling.
“There was, of course, some time also for fun activities. Our staff organized a relay on a 900 m long track, starting on the main square in Hvar city and leading to historic fortress Fortica (Španjola), 100 m above the starting point. The riders were referees and photographers and the staff performed the relay. At the end, a mixed team of masseurs and mechanics won, leaving the team of sports directors and trainers behind.”
All in all, we are leaving Hvar very satisfied with the work that has been done and also thankful for the great hospitality, atmosphere, and conditions that we found there. We hope to be back in the same place this time next year,” concluded Miholjević.
