TRAINING / PEAKY TEAM TRAINING CAMP / MALLORCA
Day 3 – Absolutely Speechless…
Peaky Climbers Team Training Camp, Mallorca
9th April 2017
This was all the more impressive as Ben, Simon, Mark, Nobby, JB and Macca had all completed yesterday’s 150km ride. To come back out today feeling positive in the searing heat, no breeze and challenging climbs was very positive and helped the teams self belief.
Lunch was eaten in a sober atmosphere, each of the guys mentally preparing for what would prove to be the ultimate challenge of the weekend.
The sense of emotion and satisfaction upon achieving this goal, both as a team and individually, was there for all to witness. The odd tear shead, many team hugs and high 5’s were all in evidence…the exhilaration, and sense of achievement was palpable.
After a few minutes, it was back on the bikes and we headed off back towards the ‘cyclists garage’ for a sneaky celebratory beer. The last 39k was swift as we decended down the Coll de Sa Batalla to Camperet. After few few mix ups with the directions, we headed up and out and en route back home to Pollenca. This was a road for cyclists, but was the worse track we’d cycled on all weekend…the rest of the roads were superb.
What a day. What an experience. Where do we go from here?
Tonight…a few beers…then home…
“It’s more than just a cycle ride… it’s a way of life!”
