Team Tomacc Pre-Season Training Camp!
After an early start and an 11 hour drive to a beautifully scenic Southern France, we arrived in Berganty, on the Saturday evening.We stayed in the Mas Des Flandrien, a chalet like converted barn, an ideal place to recover and relax after hard training.
Mas Des Flandrien, our home for 10 days.

The camp began with a steady 4 hour ride on Sunday, getting the travel out the legs and checking out our surroundings for the next 8 days. The team was in high spirits, eager to get stuck into the solid training days ahead.
And solid it was, with over 1100km ridden over the 9 days of riding on the camp, a mixture of steady and grippy rides but mostly race simulating efforts, to give us a well rounded block of training that has left us all now needing a slightly easier week to recover!
A glimpse of the incredible landscapes on offer.
I was very pleased with how the training camp went, looks like the whole team has improved over the Winter, and with some strong additions, I’m really confident we can achieve some top results as a team this season! My aim is definitely to make a step up, improving on the results I gained last year, is something I feel I am more than capable of.

Another great photo opportunity!
The training camp has been a very useful and productive way to get to know new team mates and add the finishing touches to our condition before racing begins. It also gives us the opportunity to share stories and have a good laugh, which can really help a team become closer before the first race. We are now in a better position to work better together come Sunday!!
