The U23 team will begin its second pre-season training camp on January 20 in Oliva Nova
Despite the fact that at first it was planned to start the concentration on Wednesday 22 January, the U23 team of the Alberto Contador Foundation will finally advance the start of their concentration in Oliva Nova Beach & Golf Resort by two days. It will be Monday January 20 the day in which the team led by Rafa Diaz Justo and his coaching staff began a week of intense work in a privileged area for the practice of this sport.
“A minimal touch up in terms of dates but it will be very useful for us to make very good training. The facilities in Oliva Nova are unbeatable and we are working very well for the season, something we have already been able to enjoy in 2019. At the same time, it will allow us to distribute the activities planned so that we do not have such a concentrated calendar in fewer days”, said Díaz Justo.
The riders will face seven days of preparation on Levantine roads and will take part in the official presentation of all the sports structures of the Alberto Contador Foundation, set for Monday, January 27. The team’s competitive debut is scheduled for Saturday, February 8, in Toledo, and will take place in a new event. The Memorial Julio López de la Torre ‘Chineta’ in the town of Burguillos de Toledo will host the debut of the Kometa-Xstra Cycling Team u23 2020. Two weeks later, also in Castilla-La Mancha, it will be the turn to compete in a new edition of the Memorial Sanroma.
The Kometa-Xstra Cycling Team u23 will be composed in 2020 by the Balearic Joan Martí Bennassar, the riojano Arturo Grávalos, the Castilian-Leonese Vicente Hernaiz, the Castilian-La Mancha Fernando Tercero, the Andalusians Mario Vilches and David Martín, the Catalans Edu Rodes and Álex Martín, the Andalusians Edu Pérez-Landaluce and Yago Segovia, the Colombian Jhon Stiven Ramírez, the Czech David Andrlé and the Italian Alessio Acco.
