Cylance Pro Cycling men’s team recently completed a successful altitude training camp at Big Bear Lake, California. Nestled in the mountains at above 6700 feet, this picturesque location offered superb opportunities for team training and product testing. From hard efforts to enjoying the snow, the team finished its final preparation for the 2017 season.
When technology and innovation matter the most, it is important for the team to work with companies that are passionate about continuing revolutionary progress. Sponsors such as Glukos Energy, Cannondale, and Sugoi Apparel educated the team at the mountain location about products and future research and design.
The week long camp was designed by Director Sportif, Hilton Clarke, the intent being to optimize the men’s training and test the limits of both the athletes and the equipment. “We have a great group of riders this year, all of which are talented, motivated, and with diverse experience. I am excited for the season.” says Clarke. Clarke organized drills, from team trial and sprint practice, to motorpacing sustained efforts.
