Before the camp, you can contact the race organizer with any camp questions. Review the Hotel page on the race website that may recommend accommodation for Camp participants, or contact the race organizer.
In the days before the camp is scheduled to begin, you will get your Welcome email, usually the organizer asks you to provide the name of your accommodation, your WhatsApp number, your approval to add you to the WhatsApp group, and whether you have family or friends who joined you on the trip.
During Camp week, you will receive daily communications about the schedule, the route, weather and other important camp information.
During each group ride, there are at minimum two group leaders, sometimes up to six group leaders, who speak multiple languages and are cycling in the peloton aside you. The group leaders are experienced in offering mechanical support, as well as knowing the day’s route. The leaders split their peloton location, with one being always at the front of the peloton, and one at the back of the peloton to support the entire peloton.
During each group ride, there is at minimum one support vehicle. The support vehicle meets the peloton at the meeting point and carries basic mechanical tools and supplies, as well as supplementary sports nutrition, water and snacks. (You can pump your tires every morning with the vehicle’s pump). Once the ride begins, the vehicle travels with the peloton. In case of varying weather, you can drop off any jackets with the vehicle at the start of a ride or at the base of a climb, and pick up your jacket when weather changes or for a major descent. If you have any mechanical, you can contact the support car by calling or by WhatsApp with your location to pick you up.
You will be introduced to the Camp leaders and support drivers during the Welcome Dinner and you will have everyone’s phone numbers. You won’t be left alone during a camp, group leaders always keep their attention on the safety and well-being of each athlete.
