We are delighted to be heading back to Riccione with Joe Friel for a second year.

We had a fantastic camp here in 2012 and this one promises to be event better. Check out the camp report on Triathlete Europe photos from 2012 here.

The area surrounding Riccione is where Marco Pantani lived and trained.There is a wealth of cycling options from the flat rides in and around the charming coastal towns right up to the lofty heights of the Barbotto Pass and the climb up to the Garfagnana Milestone. You will come under the guidance of world class Coach Joe Friel and TrainingBible Coaching UK Senior Coach Will Newbery. The camp will take place from May 11th-18th 2013. This area is perfect for a triathlon training camp with both professional cycling and triathlon teams including Fasso Bortolo, Cofidis and the Italian National Triathlon Federation choosing to train there for its good climate, quiet roads and stunning and varied riding routes.

The major focus of this week will be cycling and building base endurance and skills in all three disciplines for the upcoming race season. Book by November 6th to benefit from our early booking discount.

We will be staying at a fantastic 3* hotel by the sea. With excellent facilities within a short walk or cycle we can choose from a range of outdoor and indoor 50m swimming pools. We will also be using the nearby athletics tracks for speed and technique sessions. We will have our open water swim sessions at the beautiful sandy beach adjacent to the hotel.
