"The team has been divided into two groups, one with the fastest riders and the other with those who have better climbing skills" explained Cucinotta. "The program has included two blocks of three days of loading, followed by a discharge, with the inclusion of a test, on the third day, to check the general condition of each rider".

The training camp is useful to see all the riders, to evaluate them but also to educate them, especially the young ones, on the bases of a good training when they are at home "
